This is a great climb to train beginning leaders. The well protected first move is probably somewhere between 5.2 and 5.4 then the rest of the climb is mostly 4th Class. This is also the best and most reasonable way to get to the more interesting climbing above. After climbing the above pitches, it was nice to have this rap anchor available for a safe & easy descent.
