Start up a corner, angle right up a ramp to an arete. Follow the arete and ledges to the top. This is a great route for novice leaders.
Starts the same as Nappy.
Small gear up to .75 camalot. Need two 4' slings on anchors to reduce rope drag.

Be sure to place solid gear. There is some rotten rock and you should be good at determining good quality placements. If you are putting your friend on their first lead, you might want to consider a more difficult climb with better gear.
My friend took a 50 footer after plugging a stopper into some bad rock and only avoided injury by getting hung up on a branch of the tree at the bottom with a good belay.

Fun route! First trip/first lead at T-Wall...set a #6 Wild Country Rock a wee bit too well...second couldn't clean it...booty for someone who can!

My first lead climb, and in my opinion not the best for a new leader. Not too hard, but still more than I bargained for at 5.5 in the guide. Gear on the lower part is sparse; be sure to not get too far right. Ends at 2 bolts/rap rings.
