Bouldery start, super easy 5.2- 5.3 climbing after the first bolt.

After the vertical start, this can be climbed without using your hands all the way to the anchor. Pretty fun to do it this way. I did a knee dab around the last bolt though it was probably unnecessary;)

Great climb for beginner climbers. Took my whole family (with climbers as young as 5 years old). The route must be lead in order to set up a top rope. The first part was a little challenging for the uninitiated, but they had fun.

The bolts were in really great condition. A little bit of loose rock, but it's mostly been cleaned by now, and we only had a few pebbles fall. The anchors are in great condition (the right anchor's hanger moves a bit, but the bolt itself is solid) and are on top of a ledge. I ran slings in order to dangle biners off the ledge in order to have a nice top-rope set up without any drag.

Thank you to those of you who set and maintain this route. We had a wonderful time!
