Thanks for putting this up at my request. It is an excellent easy sport route perfect for a first lead. Lead it today in my Teva's since I forgot my climbing shoes.

I think this route is actually more like 5.0. It is perfect for beginners on top rope or a beginner lead.

The anchor at the top of the route is good for top roping other parts of this easy slab.

"Cracker Jacks " has gotten really popular. We saw two parties on it on Saturday and two more parties on Sunday.
