This was my first route at Mission Gorge. I don't know if this route is typical for 5.4 at MG, but it felt pretty tough for 5.4! Think 5.7 on smoooooth rock....
For a 2nd pitch, worked left from the belay, finishing up on Skyline Pinnacle (5.7)...a nice route on high friction, quality rock. Felt true to grade.

There are a two ledges that could be the start of the route. The first move off of the upper ledge into the crack system is a little tricky for a 5.4 rating, though the rest of the route is straight forward. 5.6 is a more accurate considering the first move.

There is no way this is 80 feet. The route is more like 30 feet.

My first trad lead. Easy climbing, good pro, great stances. Recommended for a new leader, otherwise there's better stuff to spend your time on.

Great first trad route. Easy stances to place gear from. Crux is near the top and easily protected. Everyone seem to try and work out left though and then they just get stuck...
