Leonardo is a great climb, 11- seems like a sand bag.
Requires some hard to place thin wires down in the crux section.

Looks like Fleming bagged the FFA in 82.
Route is close to the mouth of Lower La Cueva.

The Markingstone roof is the big obvious roof on the first pitch of Gemstone. 10+ is pbbly a sand bag. There's a pic of Ryan Smith hanging out at the base of it after the squeeze bit on Gemstone. Short variation to Gemstone but the moves make for some good stemming.

Also from that era, a description of the free version of an old aid climb, now "Leonardo da Smear."
