Easy pocket climbing, leads to a crux pulling the bulge, and ends on a stint of slab.

This was my first 5.10 lead and i loved every second, the top-out gets real slabby for a pull over a ledge to the anchors it was def my mental crux on lead

Super fun easy-going climb. Get through the crux with the help of two massive underclings and then enjoy easy slab climbing to the anchors.

Great fun . . . Had a little trouble with the crux sussing it out, but it's all there.
