It's fairly straight forward at first, but about 2/3 of the way up the face turns in to nothing but tiny crimps. It's really heady for the grade. My only advice? Don't go left in lieu of the crimpy face. All the holds are there, you've just gotta power through. It was my first non-toprope climb and it was a little more than I bargained for, but definitely worth it.

If you are a beginner leader, give this one a shot. A well protected, fun climb, with such a view!
