A bit of a highball V0 boulder problem to first piece (15' or so). Good gear after this in each horizontal you pass. Light PG rating for the start. Good quality climbing. An easy and bomber TR set up if your not comfortable leading it.

Didn't lead this, but agree that the pro' was there for a confident leader. Fun, reachy face climbing.

Fun climb, the first 15 feet was challenging with small holds. Moves are a bit easier once you hit the horizontal cracks but still lots of fun. I climbed this on TR and there are two good trees set back about 20' from the edge and a boulder about 10'. Careful approaching the edge to set the TR because you have to climb down a ledge to set it.
