This is an excellent route! Mind you, the climbing isn't particularly thought provoking or interesting. In fact, the climbing can be fairly "meh". Where this route shines is the position, exposure and views; all at a very easy grade. This is a great route for anyone just getting into leading or just wants a fun and easy romp in the mountains!
