BETA PHOTO: seond pitch of Three Pitch
A great easy multi-pitch. First pitch 5.4 would be a good first trad lead. Belay at a tree on large ledge. Second pitch pretty well protected, 5.7, ends on another good ledge (gear belay). Third pitch (5.6) is very short and starts to the left of the second pitch belay. Top of route has two large trees, one with webbing and rap ring. Can make it to the ground with one 70, not sure about a 60. You could easily rap to pitch one ledge and do two shorter raps.
This route is past Triad but not as far as the amphitheater. Check out photo.

This is an okay route. We climbed it in two pitches with a 60 meter rope, about 30 feet of 5.4, belay at the first ledge, and then go to the top. I would not suggest the first pitch as a good beginner lead because of how short it is, as there wouldn't be many opportunities to place more than a couple of pieces of gear. I would feel comfortable leading the first pitch over a crash pad.
Ends at a pine tree with slings and a rap ring. Slings looked good as of 3/30/14. Good crack for gear behind the tree if you want to build a more extensive anchor. I watched vultures land on the ledge next to me as I belayed my wife up - it was a cool experience.

Graham Wilson/Tommy Taylor route probably late 1960's. Steele classic.

There are ring anchors at the top. They are not in the best location as you have to climb above them and reach over the edge. There are no slings on the tree anymore so you'll need some if you want to belay a second up. Also watch out for pine straw on the last move or two of this thing, I almost took a nasty fall the last time I lead this route because of it.
