|Short but fun climb, nice for the beginner trad leader|
Nov 21, 2012
Seemed like a good beginning trad lead. Some people with me complained that it was awkward working between the corner and the arete - I didn't feel it too be bad. Good opportunity to use medium size hexes or large nuts. The most powerful part of this climb is the start which is a bouldery power or finesse move - can be easily protected with the overhead slot (I put a medium hex into it).
No anchor at the top. I slung a rock with a long cord (a runner won't be large enough for what I used). Other chose to just do a braced belay.
