Katy's first lead

Description 

Huge holds, great rock and lots of protection make this ideal for a first lead, something I've witnessed numerous times on this route. If you don't like the bolts, then solo it like was done on the first ascent.

Location 

This is the right-most route on the narrow south face and is the next bolted route right of Bacon Taco.

Protection 

3 bolts, chain anchors

My 6 year old Stephen cruised this yesterday, looking like a pro.

Not many places where you'll find as friendly a climb on this high quality of rock. Thanks to the FA for recognizing all levels of climbers want to experience the outdoors, whether you climb 5.3 or 5.13
