|This route is more difficult than rated without very particular beta for those under 6' I give it a 5.11a/b, I'm 5'8" and the direct start to dealer's choice (the pusher) is rated a 5.11b and that was onsightable. Absolutely an awesome climb, a crash pad is welcome here.|

This was one of the first routes I ever led outside of the climbing wall where I learned to climb. It must have been spring or summer 2002.
I fell going to the first bolt, hit the ground, which angles to the left, flew past my spotters, who thought that I would fall towards them, and rolled down the hill for twenty feet. I was happy to be able to do it second try, with bloody cuts all over my back.
It's funny how different things look with experience.
