This is an easy intro route for all climbers. Many variations exist, but most popular is the crack that starts the the far right, then moves left to a three bolt anchor.
This is on the east face near the 5.0 crack for the TR set up.
8-13 stoppers. 3 bolt anchor 15 feet from summit, or 2 bolt anchor at summit.
Austin marks the base of the route.

The anchor at the top consists of an I bolt that twists a bit and an additional newer hanger behind it that couldn't be used for rapping off of. I felt comfortable belaying from this anchor, but opted to downclimb instead of take my chances with the twisty bolt. An effort has clearly been made to reinforce it, but the angle at which it was set leads to tension that is making it loose. Just a heads up for an otherwise fantastic beginning lead. (The view from the top is worth the while!)

This is probably the best first trad lead in the area in my opinion. Just follow the obvious flake the whole way up, it tends to take medium size gear the whole way. Go to the intermediate anchors or to the very top of the pinnacle.
