Description 

This route makes a great warm up and as all the routes, steep for the grade. The holds are big, the moves are big, and the rock perhaps a little sharp, but hey, your climbing limestone, beautiful limestone. May be a little more difficult for the short folk among us.

John Byrne's climbing guide gives this route a grade of 5.8d, but since that is not an option on this site, I rounded up :).

Location 

On the left side of the cave, outside of the cave.

Protection 

5 TITANIUM bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.
