Comments: I never really knew what people meant when people commented about routes needing to be cleaned up until this weekend. We climbed four of the routes right of the trad climb (including the 5.8, 5.9, and 5.10. They all had multiple holds break on us. Even being careful, much of the climb is still very friable.

Comments: I am looking for a little bit better beta on the approach. Just getting back into trad, and like the idea of these easy single pitch routes.

Comments: I only did the route to the first tree. Nice route, but for the beginning leader, the crack is very deep and you need to be careful about your cams walking. It was fun, but I spent a little to much time placing gear, and my right calf cramped something fierce. Because the route is easily top roped on your own anchor, it would be a great place to learn how to place gear while on top rope.

Comments: This is a classic route at RR. It is a great way to learn trad. It is well protected and teaches how to use longer slings to help with rope drag. As of May 26th, the slings around the tree are good. Beware of the rappel, there is quite the overhang on the way down.

Comments: I agree that this is a very fun route. It was my sport climbing partner's first trad lead, and my first lead in many years. This route protects very well. It would be a fun place to practice looking for nut placements. The only thing that makes it a little difficult for a beginning climber is that the belay at the top is out of sight of most of the climb. This makes communication difficult. Overall, very fun.

Comments: I too really enjoyed this route. I agree with the comment about the second clip. If you clip low, the deck potential is very high. Also, the right bolt at the anchors is spinning.

Comments: I agree about the slab comments. If you need to work on trust issues with your feet and friction, this is a great route to do it.

Comments: This is a great warm up route. It seems soft for the rating, and there are foot an hand holds every where you need them. Great beginner lead.
