Pete's Lead (great for beginning trad lead climbers)
Easy well-protected lead. The crux is mid-way up where the crack widens and the flake becomes bulbous making it tough to lie back. The crux has a couple of vertical mail slot pockets on the left face that are easy to miss. Above the crux it becomes an easy scramble to the finish where a horizontal crack takes gear to protect on the short traverse right to the anchors for the sport route, Smidgin.
Pete's Lead is to the left of Smidgin. The start is a left tilting ramp leading to the crack. Get down by using the anchors for Smidgin provided it is not being used, or if the party on Smidgin doesn't mind sharing.
