The start just left of the tree.
Starts up ramp/slot on left then follows the face past bolts to chains. Good moderate climbing with a small headwall at top. Great first lead.
First route on the left kind of hidden in corner.
Bolts, Good anchors. You could use a midsize tcu in the middle of the climb if you care to

Agreed - a smallish cam might make a fledgling leader feel safer...but I wouldn't wanna fall on said cam since it'd be behind a somewhat loose block. One move past that and you're standing on a picnic ledge.

I disagree on the "GREAT 1st LEAD" thing, can't see/ hardly hear the climber, not steep enough(ledge fall=broken ankle?), but then again prob just me, I usually don't prefer the hike-type climbs. =)

Sorry to disagree with you, JLPierce, but this is fine as a first lead. It's insanely easy - I would venture to say that if someone is falling on this route (which is soft for 5.7), they're probably not ready to safely lead ANYTHING yet. As far as communication goes, my belayer, who is partially deaf (literally) had no problems hearing me.

Was out at Sweet Rock this weekend, did this one. It is fun! I grabbed my rack because I thought I saw a couple good placements and as I am just starting trad I could use the practice.. Ended up clipping only 3 of the bolts. Lowered off and came back later and did it again, and only clipped one of the bolts. This thing takes good gear. Only bolt I clipped was the third, and that is only because I didn't trust myself (I injured my leg playing tag the night before). Protects very well.

Great climb. Gee, that bolt looked really far away...fear not, the climbing is easy. lots of fun.

Fun, easy 5.7 with a variety of interesting movement. Maybe not the best first lead due to visibility (belayer can't check for back clipping, etc) but definitely a good warm up or beginner lead. Confident climbers will not feel the need for extra gear, but there seem to be some good placements.
