I just noticed that the poster of this route has the "Bomb" on it...I totally disagree...sure it is quite easy...for those with a decent amount of experience...but for the beginner, and as a "First lead", it is perfect!!! I have used this route many times to teach how to place pro and basic "Crack" techniques...it also allows for good "anchor" work...not a bomb in my opinion...also it is a blast for those that enjoy easier soloing.....

Fun solo! Fun variation following jugs to the right of the crack.

I agree it is a fun solo although a few hand holds are coming loose. Dont pull to hard

I agree with Locker. This route was my first trad lead four years ago. I have used this route twice to teach others on their first trad climbs...An enjoyable route for beginners.

good first lead, and fun solo. I took two friends here for their first leads on the same day, and solo cleaned both times.

Yup, definitely a good first lead.

I think even I could solo this climb!

A great warm up, or introduction climb in JTree. I thought 5.2/5.3, but at that level, who cares? The start has gotten a bit thin over the years, due to holds breaking off.

Feels like fourth class. Not worth doing, unless you need a quick way to the top. I only placed one piece in the first section and climbed up to the bolt anchor on top of Swishbah.

I don't think this is a good first trad lead because of the lack of placement opportunities.

"I don't think this is a good first trad lead because of the lack of placement opportunities."

More than enough placements. Not sure how you could see it otherwise.

Locker,
Wow, a blast from the past.
I just think there are better 5.2 cracks around. I agree with you though, you can sew this thing up.
