If this type of 5.4-5.7 shorty trad climbs interests you, there are a few lines similar to this that can be found on the Upper Ledge of Gallows, just find a good one and go for it.
1 set nuts and cams to 3". Save some gear to build an anchor at the top, or use a static line to tie off a tree 30' back from the edge.
