|The Thin Wall
Fun Solo! All there and a real kick. Also a good one for those wishing to lead something solid, easy to protect, easy approach and so on. I give it a "Star" from a solo standpoint.
This route protects will with a set of stoppers and cams up to 3 inches. Save the your larger pieces of pro to setup bely/top rope in the large crack at the top.

A great first lead, with almost no jamming needed and excellent gear. Pretty short though, otherwise it would get more stars.

Agreed. If a friend is looking for their first trad lead, this is a good route.

First few feet are pumpy to place gear for a new leader, in my opinion.

Was there a month ago. Fun lead! Yes, the 1st 5 ft can be strenuous for a new leader such as myself on placements. Had a great climbing partner/teacher too!! It helped a lot! Overall a great route!
