Comments: Went left of the bolts to keep it 5.7; good warmup. Going straight up the bolts is harder than a 7 IMO.

Comments: I really enjoyed this route! As someone said above, really relaxing for T-Wall. Crux may just be getting onto the boulder. Ends at 2 bolts/rap rings shared with New Beginnings.

Comments: My first lead climb, and in my opinion not the best for a new leader. Not too hard, but still more than I bargained for at 5.5 in the guide. Gear on the lower part is sparse; be sure to not get too far right. Ends at 2 bolts/rap rings.

Comments: Good corner for the beginning leader. Jamming helps but it can be done pretty easily without. Great gear. Anchors are set back from the top about 8' so bring something to extend them.

Comments: Fun route that protects very well and always seems to have good holds. No real crux. DCA lists it as 5.9, but it's VERY soft for that grade; 5.8 at best. By far the most dangerous part of the climb is crossing the chasm just before the climb starts. Be careful and consider anchoring in your belayer!

Comments: Great warm up route and good for the new trad leader (such as myself). The route is a bit dirty, but the pro is pretty good and the holds are fantastic, especially the top half. The view is unbeatable as well!
