This is a great, short, sport route for those who are just beginning.
Head up the river from the main west side climbing. Climb up the gully and it's at the terrace above the gully.

This route is not worth the slog up the loose gully.... Go one at a time or be sure anyone below you has a helmet on as it would be quite easy to seriously injure anyone scrambling up below you. That being said, the route itself is also pretty crummy. NOT a good beginner lead!!! Very runout climbing on some loose stuff and lots of lichen on the feet due to a lack of traffic. If you're looking for a beginner lead, keep walking another 50 feet with your eyes peeled for the next route down. It is much cleaner and a far safer lead.

This route seems pretty cleaned up now compared to what others have said. There is still some loose stuff here and there, but overall we didn't really knock anything loose, not to say that you shouldn't proceed with caution anyway. Used some smaller cams for intermediate protection.
