i was able to get 3 reasonable pieces in before the first bolt. the rock in this first section is really soft and crappy. A poor nut down low, a good tri cam on the left , about 8-10 feet below the 2-1/2 inch cam placement at the top of the left facing corner, which is about 10 feet lower than the first bolt. The climbing up to this point is very easy, maybe 5.3. Be good and ready for 15 to 20 feet between the five bolts to the chain anchor. A nice route with very good sustained climbing in the bolted section. Falling on this route is not recommended. Apr 10, 2014

This is a fun lead with some commitment required up to the first bolt. The crux after the last bolt felt harder than 5.7 which is why I recommended 5.8.

Starting in the large easy crack to the right to place a 1st piece of protection would make this a safer lead. Feb 24, 2014
This is the least runout of the sport climbs on this wall. Not bad once you reach the first bolt, and the grade is more like 5.5 up to the first bolt. Jan 7, 2012
