Climbing isn't hard. Pro is okay, rock quality mediocre. Don't recommend for the new trad leader. Make you sure you take the climb slow and test each hold before weighting it. Climb is not technically difficult but has potential for injury if the leader blows a hold from a hold breaking. Overall the climb is worth doing and features an amazing picture worthy summit. Recommend, just be careful.
