A nice two-pitch climb for the beginning leader. Protects well, guidebook says the crux step might be 5.6 or 5.7 but I disagree.

4 out of 5 stars Looks harder than it is

This route looks intimidating for the grade. Its basically a longer version of Easy Jam, with a few interesting spots that put it somewhere between 5.5 and 5.6. Some loose rock deep in the crack. Helmets might be useful. Doubles from .75 up 3 camalot protect the climb well if done as one pitch. If done as two, cut the rack in half. Double 60s got us down just fine.
