This was my very first outdoor sport lead (6+ yrs ago). Big solid holds, tons of feet and even more fun. I'm not really tall but I've never had any problems with this climb, having done it repeatedly over the years.
Great place to bring friends that want to 'try' climbing. Have someone who can lead (and someone who can belay of course) and let everyone do laps.
A very popular route, along with War Paint. This area gets very crowded. Arrive early and beat not only the crowds but the heat. The sun will rise over the ridge by noon and you'll bake in the summer.

|Not quite a classic, but great climb. Crowded. Hot in exposed afternoon sun. Mostly 5.8ish with a few 5.9 moves mostly due to potential "pump" from jugging up. Lots of great feet, easier with good technique. 1st bolt relatively high, but the climbing is good. Well bolted, protecting the toughest moves, makes for a great start in leading.|

|Nice big 'ole anchor chains with Mussey hooks - Yay! The top links attached to the bolt hangers are showing some groovy grinding wear - Oh! Looks fine for now, but I'd chip in for some new top links since this is such a popular route. I don't recall them being quick links.|
