Crux is clipping the first bolt and there's some runouts on stuff you don't want to fall on. Fortunately it's mostly 5.3 climbing so you are unlikely to fall on those sections. Kinda boring. That being said it does have some nice exposure and is in the sun if you waiting for it to warm up on a cold day.

NOT a good first lead. Pink Wall Area just upriver is a better choice for beginning leaders. Apr 6, 2016
The moves to the first bolt were harder than anything on Wanabe. Kinda a worthless route imho. With more bolts at least it would be a good first lead. The way it stands now I gotta ask why ? Mar 2, 2016

I agree, a ground fall potential getting to the second bolt, that said its easy ground just may be a little heady for a 5.5 leader. Jan 16, 2014

Good beginner lead as long as you don't fall before clipping the second bolt. Jun 15, 2011
