This variation has been the standard for 5.11a for a long time at the leap.

Really? That's the first I've heard it called .11a. I'm not sure you're wrong, but the white and green guides both have it at .11b. The carville is a mess as usual. I've always thought this one is easier than Black Pyre though.

Tough for the first 15 or so feet, great hands, fingers, and a slopey finish afterwards. THe 2nd pitch looks awesome, but sadly, I had neither the gear nor the chutzpah to lead it.
