This is a difficult lead for novice trad climbers. The two shelves have minimal protection unless you have small gear or use the bolts. Next to that the route is supper fun with a mix of everything including traverses, face climbing, lie-backs, and cracks. Had a hard time placing nuts I would trust, highly recommend cams for this one.
