Scramble up 4th class terrain to grassy ledge. Climb through easy terrain staying left of the bulge and exiting through the big V shaped crack formation. This is a good warm up climb and good for teaching trad climbing.

Tons of cam/nut placements on route as well as top for TR.

This is not a good route for teaching trad climbing. It is also not really a 5.3, more like a 5.5. just because it is overhanging and a new trad learner might get pumped trying to inspect their placements, unless they already have some experience.
