An excellent route for new trad leaders, or toproping by climbers on the rock for the first time. A nice face with plentiful protection leads to the top.
Starts just left of Men Without Hats, across from Lucky Strikes.
Small to medium gear (cams, tricams, nuts). Gear and/or sling a tree for anchors.

This is a worthwhile lead even for climbers who lead at a higher grade. Recommended.

Great warm up route and good for the new trad leader (such as myself). The route is a bit dirty, but the pro is pretty good and the holds are fantastic, especially the top half. The view is unbeatable as well!
