An O.K. climb; my wife wanted to lead it. Easy route, and doesn't take long.

fun climb, and well worth it at the grade... too bad the upper wide finger crack isn't longer...

This was a very enjoyable and easy climb. I'd recommend it to any new trad leader. The start is a little bit tricky, but after that it's just plain fun.
