Fun 5.7/7+ trad climb. Pretty varied climbing on ...

Description 

Just breaking into leading trad this is a route that you should give a go. Follow the flake and crack past the only bolt and the crux. The gear is there but it is marginal at best. Wanting the route to see traffic the bolt went in. Finish with a little bit of off-width.

Location 

Window Shopping is on the south side of The Ornament about 20 feet up the gully to the left of Black Friday

Protection 

.3-#3 camalot, stoppers,one bolt.

Varied and worthwhile climbing.This isn't a bad route at all, but with some marginal gear and hollow flaky rock on it, and one poorly protected move that felt tricky for a 7; I wouldn't say it would be a great first trad lead (IMHO). The step across move to start was pretty fun though...
