A fun route with beautiful views! The first long pitch is super duper great for new trad leaders, or a fun solo for more experienced climbers.
I thought that most of the rock on this route was great; not one hold broke off on me, which says a lot on the overall quality (for a newer Red Rock route, anyway).
We simul-climbed a good portion of this route, as it's fun, mellow climbing.
It would be a super fast way to get to the climbs on the upper walls (First Creek Slabs Ledge) if you are okay with simul-climbing, and decent at route-finding.
Thanks for putting this one up, Larry DeAngelo, and Raluca, and Karsten Duncan; It made my day!

|I was not impressed by this route. Many better options on the Slabs to either side.... The first three pitches were quite good, but the rock quality, protection, line, and rock all deteriorated dramatically on the next few pitches, detracting from the fun.|

|A very long, fun, easy route. Mostly solid rock with the occasional pause for careful climbing in areas where the rock is yet to be cleaned. Protection is few and far in between in many places but the climbing is so casual that it's not really an issue. 2 and a half stars.|
