Had a great time doing this line first while other parties sorted themselves out on star chek. Other than the 10 feet of sandy climbing at the bottom (due to being a new route) this route is perfect for beginner trad leads. The 5.8 pitch probably would be rated 5.7 other places because there are some good feet. We didn't have a 4 with us so just threw a #3 at the bottom of the wide section but to be extra comfortable if you were a super new leader you could bring the 4. We had a 60 m and a tag line so were able to do a single double rope rappel down to the hand line where this starts and back down again to do star chek.
