Good clean fun. It was a super nice line for a 5.7 It had better flow than Baby Teeth, almost making it an easier climb. And of course, it also makes and excellent first lead.

As one of the picture comments states, take a longer sling for the third clip, its off to the right of the line and will help reduce rope drag.
