Nice climb, nice view, nice horns, exciting but well protected opening moves over the bulge. It is runout after the bulge but easy.
Middle of the rock. Start on about 25 feet right of Puppy Love at a tree, left of a bushy ledge that is 25' off the ground
TCU's at the beginning, sling 2-3 horns, then a #1 or 2 in the flake up high near the top. Use the tree for the anchor, rap or walk off left

Found the 2 horns to sling I think. The first one came off in my hand as I made a little dynamic move from it. Fun little route. Felt more like Table Rock climbing than the Bald. Did also find a 000 C#, and a #1 BD cam before the flake up top. This is a better first lead I think than the confusing and awkward "I Stink When I'm Wet"

First Trad lead. My friend and I left a rap station 12/12.
