#3 - #4 camalots handy, as are fist jams higher up. A little wide and flaring.

Just an OK climb; not much fun. OK for teaching beginners.

good as a beginner lead, especially if your foot/fist jamming could use some practice

really great little climb, worth the two stars. If your a beggining climber its nice jams and low angle good feet, and if your a 5.12 climber everyone needs to warm up right?

Nice climb, one of my first leads. Learned how to fist jam on this.

top half is easier, bottom half is pretty polished for JTree standards, many of the moderates on this wall are slick down low.
