Hey, I remember: trad is scary on lead. Calling this one a retro-flash.

Pleasant enough climbing, worth doing to reach On Edge (above). Use the last third as an opportunity to practice your trad placements.

The first pitch is fairly straightforward, the second is a lot more challenging (hats off to Kym). Second carrot on the 2nd pitch (after the hanger) is in a butt-clenchingly high spot.

Wild contortions to get through the overhang, then efficient moves to scale the arete. It's pretty doable, once you know how.

15 Frog Groove

A route with very little to recommend it. First viable protection is 10m up, second is another 15m higher, then you scramble to the top of the first pitch. If you're going to put yourself at that much risk, the climb better be worth it. Second pitch is a 5m joke. Skip this one.

Getting a grip on the leading edge of the overhang (start of second pitch) feels pretty hairy. Decent for practicing multi-pitch.
