This route is really fun and moderate. My first trad lead! Plenty of options for gear as well. I used a #2 C4, a couple of stoppers, a blue .3 x4 for the flaring crack towards the top and lastly a red torque nut right before the last moves to the anchor. Great climb and thanks to Jon for the anchors. May 7, 2017

Awesome anchor addition Jon. I agree with your sentiment on a good but short lead. I never liked figuring out how to get off it though! Oct 14, 2015

Just added two anchors to the top of this climb today. I believe (although short) that this is an excellent lead for the budding tradster. Oct 11, 2015

I lead this climb and i'm still not sure why. It was the end of the day, my partner was growing tired, so i said, lets give this a quick go and then get out of here. It seemed very easy for a 5.7. And by the time you feel like your actually off the ground, your at the top. Additionally, the rap down was a bit sketch (no obvious walk off/easy down climb that i saw). I rapped off a large pine tree about 10 feet left of the top out and ran the rope over a ledge to be able to retrieve the one cam and nut i placed. In my opinion, necedah offers some really cool classic routes, stick to those. Jun 15, 2014
