This would be a PERFECT first lead. Well protected, short, positive, yet still interesting!

The climbing on this route is better than Chiclets and the rock quality is nice. Given the stars assigned to the routes in Marty's book I would give this route one or maybe two stars since it is such a good beginner's lead. I personally thought it was over bolted at the top. The first bolt was high enough up to warrant less bolts and wider spacing.
