    This was my first lead climb, and has very good clipping stances. I found 5 bolts. The crux (V1-2) is the start, before your first clip.

    Great first lead! All bolts have solid stances, not too long and on same wall with a great 5.6 (Grizabella) to follow.

    Perfect first lead. If you're a good friend, you'll do Mr.Mistofflese to the left. Then rappel down to the top of the 5.4 and walk your pal through setting an anchor or repelling from a good spot.
    I rate this as classic, cuz it's a perfect first.
