Route is an easy first trad lead.

Be brave and stick to the left hand arete. A tad harder than going right but you avoid the nasty potential pendulum and it gets easier fast.

My first Trad lead. What a great intro into trad climbing! I couldn't believe I even ran it out a bit without knowing it. The moves flowed well. The trickiest part was the start to the bolt. I used TCU's small Camalots and one BOMBER nut. Great climb!! and Decent view!

Fun climb but I thought the rock was crap. I'm really new to trad leading so you can chock this up to inexperience, but the rock seemed really brittle looking to me. I dunno. I just felt like it would have blown if I had fallen on it.

A little more exciting than I thought I would be. Standing on the top of the pinnacle makes it well worth it!
