Description 

A nice warmup with an interesting stemming start and a great view of the river valley. This is one of the few lines at T-Wall that's soft for the grade.

Scramble up to the top of the big trailside boulder; if you're leading, you'll want your belayer up there too. Plug in some gear to protect the opening move, then step across the gap to the face. Climb an easy corner, then trend left toward the arete. Continue up the face through a wide slot left of a roof, then on to the top.

Location 

One of the first routes after you take the trail split to T-Wall north. Starts at a large boulder below the cliff face, just right of Nappy/New Beginnings.

Protection 

Small to medium gear; bolted anchors.

After all these years, I finally got around to leading this. It's the easiest lead I've ever done at T-Wall, but it's still lots of fun.

I really enjoyed this route! As someone said above, really relaxing for T-Wall. Crux may just be getting onto the boulder. Ends at 2 bolts/rap rings shared with New Beginnings.

Nice warmup with a great view. Step across move from the boulder is really cool, and the view near the top is great. Climbing is easy and fun, maybe a little soft compared to other 5.7's around here. Gear on the first half of the route is obvious and plentiful; the second half has great gear as well but you have to look for it more. Maybe bring some slings for extending placements on the second half.
