Comments: I really enjoyed this climb, my first multi-pitch. Perfect to start out, it seems like its a first for alot of climbers so I rated it great just for the fact that it's a popular beginners choice. Real close to the parking and an easy scramble in. The route is real fun, easy climbing and good bolt placement. However when I did this, one of the bolts at the belay point below P2 was loose and pulled out a bit so it was interesting, and also there were a few spinners as well. Im sure it's been done ... more >>

Comments: Fun route. The bolts all felt good but I remember there being a big slab towards the top anchor that felt a little on the loose side with potential for an accident so watch out for it. Overall good route, we belayed from a different position than is listed on the beta but it all worked out.

Comments: The route starts off good but the first few bolts made me think about it. My partner fell off the second or third bolt and damn near hit me and the ground so be careful here since the ground slopes a bit. Once your past them it's all good. Some obvious holds and some small hidden holds as well. Overall its a good fun climb. Watch for sharp edges.

Comments: This was one of my very first routes I've climbed. It definitely feels a little tricky for a 5.8 if that's what you usually lead. Some of the moves are obvious and some are a little tricky to figure out but it's not bad for new climbers like I was when I first tried it. Overall it's a decent sharp climb.
