Decent route to practice cam placement. Also fun to solo.

Fantastic route to teach trad-leading on. Bolts right next to the crack. Also, not a 5.7, I think 5.4-5.5 is more accurate, but it was fun.

Could be easily led with gear. 5.6 seems about right.

Hardest moves at base. This is where ratings fail. You could say the start is 5.8 for me, as the movement is more akin to something rated 5.8 or above, and then it eases up after that and I wouldn't rate it. The steep bit halfway up again is more challenging than typical 5.7 or whatever, and then eases up yet again. Humans and their ratings. It's not hard, unless it is, then it is, unless you're someone else. Whatever it is, it's pretty fun.
