A good beginner lead that can be sewn up with hexes and stoppers (although the hand-sized cams may be more convenient). A bit of an airy step-across at the top of the crack to reach the belay, where a large cam is helpful (but not absolutely necessary)

Probably closer to 1.8 stars. A nice, easy hand crack.

Nice warm up/ beginner's route- I agree the face climbing traverse at the end could possibly catch an aspiring leader by surprise. There is a walk off by ledge to the right and down an easy chute (watch out for a few loose steps).

There is now two bolt anchor at the top of this climb, so you do not have to do the traverse.

Absolutely wonderful warm-up. Climb this then the left side to get the day started.

An OK climb, but better bring some tape. Brutally crystalline rock!

Thought this was harder than Edwards, weird. Did it as a warm up and had no idea what it was. Figured it was easy 5.8. Good hands the whole way, but a lot steeper than Edwards.

This is a great training climb! If you're new to crack climbing like me, then setting up a top rope from the anchor makes it easy to progress your technique by letting you do several runs without having to constantly take down and set up. A fun route can also be done just to the left of Maiden from the same anchor. It starts with a lieback and ends with a chimney.
