This outstanding beginners route is located between The Trama and The Ramp. Climb up a block section to a stance atop a small pillar, then continue up a trough to the anchor.

Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

Nice route to practice trad placements.

Once the TR is set up, you can climb the arete which is probably closer to a 5.7 or 5.8. I didn't lead this to set the anchor so I don't know how difficult that would be to lead.

This, along with Beautiful and Turkey Chute (and in that order) would make a great "beginning trad-leader" day.
