Description

An excellent route for new trad leaders, or toproping by climbers on the rock for the first time. A nice face with plentiful protection leads to the top.

Location

Starts just left of Men Without Hats, across from Lucky Strikes.

Protection

Small to medium gear (cams, tricams, nuts). Gear and/or sling a tree for anchors.

This is a worthwhile lead even for climbers who lead at a higher grade. Recommended. Feb 15, 2011

Great warm up route and good for the new trad leader (such as myself). The route is a bit dirty, but the pro is pretty good and the holds are fantastic, especially the top half. The view is unbeatable as well! Oct 2, 2012
