|I concur that this is an excellent beginner lead. I'd say it is even easier than 5.5. I'd give it a 5.4. No jamming is required. There are large jugs all the way up.|

This route is just fantastic - easily one of the best at its grade, whatever that may be, in the park. It's almost like a super-easy version of Pope's Crack. It's an attractive line, many different ways to climb it, fairly continuous climbing, sew-up gear .... what a great route!
We 'found' it as a no-star, may-as-well-take-a-look route from the '92 Vogel guide, and it's totally brought back my appetite for seeking out hidden gems.
