I really enjoy this route. It climbs really well...and flares to the inside.

Seemed longer than 30 feet. Ton of fun; be careful of the scrambling and dead trees to get to it.

This would be a stellar climb for a beginning leader- clean falls and great gear opportunities all the way up. All of the above ^

Just make sure to put long-ish runners so the cams don't walk deep into the crack and open up, making them nigh impossible to retrieve. Believe me, it can happen.

this a really nice 5.7. nothing too hard, great gear (lots of C3s and nuts) and has a nice little top out. i didn't notice the flaring-nes though

Great little route that eats nuts! I found the placements a little tricky about two thirds of the way up (hence the name) but if you have a small cam/tricam it should be easy to protect. The route has bolted anchors at the ledge (out of sight).
