Description 

My very first day climbing wound up here & I couldn't do the route.

Years later I went back to lead it, went so easy I turned right around and soloed it.

Not that I advocate soloing or anything, but this one is just slightly over a boulder problem in height, and WOW what a great landing!

Protection 

2 Smalllll cams fit the cracks for protecting the crux. after that if you still need gear it there all over(Tri-Cams work good)

A great lead or solo, situated in a nice quiet spot. 5.8 is probably closer to the mark.
