Got three people to do their first leads on this one. Follow the bold line, or it gets easier.

This climb, along with the 5.9 to the left, are missing all the hangers. Bolts and nuts are in place, but someone has removed all the hangers as of July 4th weekend 2011.

Fun route with good holds. Also had two people do their first leads on it today, follow the center line for a challenge or head out right for easy climbing. Also around mid-way up there is a good-sized flake that's really hollow and will move if pulled on, it's best to avoid it.
