Julie on the 1st pitch of Break Out, 5.5.
This route has two pitches of crack climbing, very near the right end of the rock. Pitch 1 (5.6) has two well-protected crux sections: a short hand crack and a fingertip lieback. Pitch 2 is easy (4th class). This climb is almost always in the shade.

The first pitch has a very short crux sequence up the shallow right facing corner. The 2nd pitch has no cracks until the 4th class finish.

The first 30' or so are fun but it probably becomes 5.3 for next 60', and 4th/easy 5th. A good route for a new leader or someone new to climbing but otherwise not very interesting. You can make it to the top with a 70m rope.

The crux crack required a pinky finger lock for me to feel secure. Once I figured that out the rest was easy. A very fun climb for someone only climbing for a few months (me).

Hmmm - Not what I usually expect for a 5.6 (i.e. not a romp, so don't be a first time 5.6 leader).
