Myong getting started on her first ever trad lead.

Description 

On the far end of the northwest face, going from the ground to the ledge below the Overhang Bypass, there is a nice low-angle jamcrack. This is a good beginenr's lead and would take whatever protection you might want to jam into it. It's also a decent and fun entry-level solo. The climb starts just down from the "walk up" to the ledge and finishes at the base of the Overhang Bypass.


Protection 

A few nuts or cams to hand sized

This is definitely a great beginner's crack and a fun solo. The crux is getting off the ground then it's smooth and fun jamming to the top. Great place to learn hand jams and great first trad lead for the faint of heart. Easy walk off.

Among my first leads. It's a nice way to start the Upper Right Ski Track.

I've found beginners have a hard time on the start. I've seen people who could climb 5.8 in the gym fail to get off the ground on Beginner's Three.

I agree with Gary, a great way to start Upper Right Ski Track. Seems to get easier the higher you climb.
