Decent route to practice cam placement. Also fun to solo.

Fantastic route to teach trad-leading on. Bolts right next to the crack. Also, not a 5.7, I think 5.4-5.5 is more accurate, but it was fun.

Could be easily led with gear. 5.6 seems about right.

Hardest moves at base. This is where ratings fail. You could say the start is 5.8 for me, as the movement is more akin to something rated 5.8 or above, and then it eases up after that and I wouldn't rate it. The steep bit halfway up again is more challenging than typical 5.7 or whatever, and then eases up yet again. Humans and their ratings. It's not hard, unless it is, then it is, unless you're someone else. Whatever it is, it's pretty fun.

Fun crack climb. First couple moves are the hardest.

There are some boards place at the bottom of this climb that attempt to level out the slopped dirt landing . They are held in place by rebar That stick up above the top of the boards. Landing on these would suck.

The most difficult parts are the beginning and the hump halfway up. the rest is easy and strait forward. This was my first sport lead as I just started climbing a few months back.

I rated it a 5.7 but I don't have much to compare it to. most of it is easier as others have said. I should have taped up my hand up as I had to use a fist jam to get over the hump.
