Getting my trad lead on for the first time at the ...
Perfect beginner trad lead. Plenty of gear and easy climbing. Climb a R-facing dihedral, slab, then move up and right over blocks. Make an anchor and walk off. Or traverse over to chains on Daffy's Shaft.
This climbs the dihedral left of Daffy's Shaft, traversing a bit right at the end to climb the roof through a weakness. The route is not difficult to climb or protect, with some slabby sections where the crack helps and other areas, that you really don't need the crack. The rock is rather good, and the climbing varied.
Dihedral left of Daffy's Shaft. Its Pretty obvious.
Large gear down low, and it thins out to small to medium gear up top. #1 camalot protects the exit move very well. There is a 1 bolt 1 bush anchor. Two ropes for the rappel or 1 60-meter rope and some downclimbing. Standard rack- Nothing bigger than #2 camalot.
