This is a bit heady for your first Trad route at Crowders, I probably triple checked every piece I placed. Lot's of fun but do the 5.7 start and watch out for the dead tree at the top. Dec 27, 2012

Two variations to this route's start.

1)(5.4)- Climb the ledge system that leads to the small alcove and continue up physically easy climbing. The rock quality is less than desirable with decent protection for the trained eye.

2)Direct Start (5.7)- Hard moves right off the ground with great protection adds spice to a rather mellow route after this section. Smooth sailing once established past this low crux. Fight your mental demons as you learn to weight poor quality rock.

Set up a top rope on the first obivious ledge or continue to the top with the option of breaking up this route into two small pitches. I recommend climbing to the top in a single pitch. Jul 4, 2012
