Stick clip the start or tie your belayer off for the early crux.

Fun climb... better make sure you make the first clip or you're in a heap of trouble. I think the crux was the beginning so make your moves and then cruise to the top.

fun and laid back route. the first clip looks scarier than it is, but don't screw it up!

the first move is way harder than .10a if you're short (5'5)
