Description 

Lechery (n): Inordinate indulgence in sexual activity. Good luck finding that on this climb!

Lechery follows a handcrack for 25 feet up to a ledge. Once at the ledge use the finger crack to finish the climb.

Another tough 5.8. A direct finish exists, go straight up the face instead of finishing left earlier. 5.11ish.

I agree with Rhoads, hard for the grade. The upper thin crack is tricky, and has funky gear placements.
