Great pastry route. If you want to practice footwork, this should be your next stop. Watch out for solid rope drag over the first ledge. The belayer can sit back even on the stump (you'll see it when you're there) to pull the rope off the wall.   This is my first real lead climb. It was a toughie, but a good one. Took a real whipper before I could get the fourth draw clipped, it was intense! That spot is definitely the crux of the route. Good rating at 5.9.   Stubborn Swede. First day leading and loved it! Heartland guide to SoiLL says it's 6 draws and an anchor, but it is only 5 as you can see in the picture.
