The route is a little loose at the top, but a good lead for a trad beginner.

This was my first lead and I found it awkward and a little sketchy with some of the loose rock (also lacked the two bolt anchor). Maybe it's a little cleaner now (climbed in early 07). Stick with the much more fun moderate sport around.
