Don't fall getting to the first bolt; no reliable pro and the rock is funky and the clip is high! Would be better if climbed more regularly; the upper half gets dirty but the climbing is good! Bring extra cams around the 0 TCU size.

Fixed cam in the upper half. It is pretty rusty, so be careful if you clip it.
