Jesse Shultz hoping this isn't Begining of the End...


Fun moderate trad lead with a steep finish past a bolt. It's all about the stemming on this one.


First route as one arrives at the wall. Farthest right hand route as you look at the wall.
Obvious crack feature that leads to the ledge and a short headwall to the anchors.


Small rack and 2 bolts to chains

The gear protected section is 5.7+, but the top definitely seemed a little tough. Not impossible, but more than a 5.7 leader would feel comfortable with. Lots of rock (mainly pebbles) coming off of this route too, so have your belayer wear a helmet and be aware.
