|Fun climbing! You can do this on the same staple anchor as A Dare By the Sea and it's well worth doing both!|

This felt like a pretty serious lead. I got this fully on-sight, but had to make some committing moves in the process. As the gear beta on here suggests a #3 cam is bomber right before the crux. The next piece you can place is a good distance above that and hard to do on lead. I opted to just run it out to a restful stance and put in gear at that point, but this definitely made things PG-13.
This felt like a harder lead than its neighbor, A Dare By the Sea which I did with relative ease right before Peak Performance.
The climbing on this route is good and definitely worth doing for the grade. I just thought I'd share my thoughts for those looking to hop on lead this. I'm sure it was nothing for Lynn Hill on the FA though!

|I TR'd this, but wish I wore a helmet so I didn't bump my head on the spiky bits above. Otherwise, I really enjoyed this route.|
