This was my first route at Mission Gorge. I don't know if this route is typical for 5.4 at MG, but it felt pretty tough for 5.4! Think 5.7 on smoooooth rock....

For a 2nd pitch, worked left from the belay, finishing up on Skyline Pinnacle (5.7)...a nice route on high friction, quality rock. Felt true to grade. Feb 18, 2008

There are a two ledges that could be the start of the route. The first move off of the upper ledge into the crack system is a little tricky for a 5.4 rating, though the rest of the route is straight forward. 5.6 is a more accurate considering the first move. Nov 30, 2008

There is no way this is 80 feet. The route is more like 30 feet. Jun 21, 2012

My first trad lead. Easy climbing, good pro, great stances. Recommended for a new leader, otherwise there's better stuff to spend your time on. Mar 31, 2013

Great first trad route. Easy stances to place gear from. Crux is near the top and easily protected. Everyone seem to try and work out left though and then they just get stuck... Apr 14, 2013

This route:
Crux start at 5.6.
Continues up 20 feet through 1-2 pieces at 5.4
Finishing move is about 5.5.
Total route length (crack): 30 ft.
(Top of route is probably 70 ft up)
Great for a first trad lead.
.5" - 1" and a 3. 2 bolt anchor. Climb on. May 22, 2013
