Description

This will surely be a classic first lead.
A bit of a move gets you off the ground then you pick your way pleasantly through a series of steps to another bit of a move around the left side of a small birch tree. Mantle on to the large comfortable ledge and clip the anchor.

This line climbs up and left setting you up perfectly for a top rope on the 5.10s on the left. Cleaning on the lower can be tricky if you are newer to leading. Might be a good plan to have the last person to climb it follow the line and clean it along the way.

Location

The second bolt line from the right that starts from ground level, maybe 30 feet right of the rt facing corner of Rainy Day - There is a nice big flat stone at the base

Protection

4 bolts to ram horn (pig tail) anchors.

Easy but not obvious climbing for a 5.4. If this feels hard at the start, you're probably making it harder than it needs to be. Jun 24, 2018

Fun climb, thanks! I gave it a 5.3 because it seemed easier than Mom's Pancake (which is a 5.4 in Ward Smith's book) - mountainproject.com/route/1… JMHO Apr 17, 2019
