You who choose to lead must follow
But if you fall you fall alone...
Ripple in still water,
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. :)
