This is route #2 in the LAM on-line guide.
The first moves off the ground are usually the most perplexing for people, but can be well protected. Then follow the nice hand/fist crack up the corner. Lots of stances along the way.
Some who have TR'd this route argue that the 5.6 is sandbagged, so maybe it is a solid 5.6+. But it is a truly excellent beginner trad lead once you feel comfortable with the opening moves. Anyone got any FA info?


Far to the left (west/north) end of the crag, second-to-last route from the northern end of the west cliff. Left of the prominent roof.


Eats up #2-#4 camalots and/or a #11 hex.
Sufficient rock at the top for a gear anchor, but not a great one, and the nearest useable trees are a ways back from the rim. LOTS of loose gravel at the top.

FIRST TRAD LEAD. Description is apt, this is a great route for beginner lead. Lots of stances, straight-forward placements for both active and passive pro. Wife and I did it over and over again without any loss of excitement. May 27, 2008
