You who choose to lead must follow

When there is no pebble tossed,
Nor wind to blow.

Pretty easy for 5.8, fun and varied. Would make for a good beginner lead - plenty of good stances and well-bolted.

Interesting start for a moderate. Great fun and well bolted!

Really enjoyable, easy 5.8 route, especially if you're new to leading like myself. Like Box of Rain, the beginning is the hardest part. Great feet and hands throughout; if you can't find one, keep moving your fingers over the rock. :)

Did anyone find my locking quickdraws on the anchors? I got caught out there in a storm (this past Tuesday) and decided to leave them instead of taking the time (and chance of getting struck by lightning) to rappel in the thunderstorm. I'd be very happy if you returned them to me. :)

In October 2013, Dale Haas and I replaced the hardware at the anchor with SS quicklinks and SS rings. The hardware was provided by the American Safe Climbing Association(ASCA)(www.safeclimbing.org). They appreciate your support.

One of the best on this wall for the grade out of the 4 or 5 in the area.
