  1. Best Beginner Trad Routes?

    Any route recommendations for a newbie trad climber? I have been sport climbing for a couple years and had the opportunity to follow some trad and alpine rock routes this summer, took a class, and am now preparing to strike out on my own for my first trad lead. I have a couple routes scoped out that I have climbed on top-rope, and are a few grades lower than I normally lead, which seem like good candidates, but since I mostly frequent sport crags I'm not familiar with many good trad areas in the state. (Also, in total honesty, it's been pretty rainy so I'm trying to live vicariously by making plans about climbing since lately I haven't actually been able to go...) Any suggestions?
