Fun, popular and great for a new leader. Crux is height dependent only (kids have problems reaching the next hold), but can be avoided by moving right. Slight rope drag when lowering from top.

Thanks for putting up this route. I concur the grade is 5.5. It is a very relaxing lead! Regina.

This climb is also an ice climb. Tim and I managed to get 2 ascents of it so far this winter. The approach is by foot (snowshoes or skis) for 4 miles down the rail trail. Seems like the wall is always in the sun, best to do after an extended cold spell with cloudy skies. WI4-

I had a blast climbing this!
I was teaching a friend to lead climb and he cruised through it. Any new leader should do this route.
