Similar to the other easy graded trad climbs in the area, this is a very short climb that maneuvers through a series of blocky and ledgy rock before finishing in a dihedral. The climb offers up good clean cracks and stances to place gear along the way, mainly taking cams up to 3-inches.
This crux of the climb comes two thirds of the way up when you have to surmount a bulge into a finishing corner. There are plenty of protection options at the crux, which felt harder mainly due to smearing and stemming your way over the bulge. Overall, a decent climb but nothing to write home again. Just another good climb for beginners looking to place gear on solid rock.
