A fun, short climb, good for beginner trad leaders as the two cracks suck up plenty of pro.

Awkward positioning early down low on the route makes me feel that this is not a beginner trad lead, despite a 5.4 rating (which I think is bogus). Sure it eats gear okay, but it requires a pretty cleaver stance to safely insert it. Two bolts (no ring, no chains) lay above the bulge just beyond the top of the crack.
