This was my first trad lead...good stances for gear. Thanks to Michael Maniscalco for showing me the ropes. Mar 12, 2007

This route had some awkward moves on it-- thanks a lot trees. Plenty of good rests to figure out the best sequence. Last 10-12 ft. had lots of cracks, but all the rock sounded very hollow. I ran it out over a #3, which added a little spice. I would recommend Jaywalker as a better first lead at T-wall. Oct 7, 2013

This is a great first lead for anyone new to T wall. The route is rated well true 5.7 for T wall. It protects well the top like mentioned above leads to some thought on gear placment however the climbing is straight forward and easy enough to work through it. Fun climb for new leaders I enjoyed it a lot! Jul 1, 2015

This was well-protected compared to the Gunks routes I'm used to, but of the corner cracks I did at T-wall, this was the least well-protected: Nappy and Jaywalker are both easier to protect. It's very G if you do it right, but the protection in the "offwidth" section isn't as immediately obvious, and if you don't protect there, a ledge fall is very possible.

If you're completely new to trad doing this, remember it's G and if you don't feel like you're adequately protected, keep looking for protection, it's there, just not 100% obvious. Jan 16, 2018
