Great hand/fist jams to be had. I think it would make a great beginner trad lead for the area given the solid rock and abundant places for pro. Only wish it was longer.

If you're a newer leader visiting the bend I also recommend trying this route first. It's easy to protect moves off the deck here (eat a peach is best done soloing the start moves). The pro the rest of the way up is pretty straight forward also. It's much easier gear wise than private passion.
