Start 5' right of Gamma Ray at a large oak tree. Follow handrails up and right until near the top. Amble left on obvious holds to the top.

A good beginner lead!

I'm not too sure this is really that good an "early lead". It just seemed to me there was a lot of "positioning" of feet & hands to keep this at the 5.5 grade. If you do lead it, save a 0.75 (green) Camaot-sized cam or nut for the move left to the exit.
