|Yep, not for a beginning leader. The first piece is high and hard to place with an awkward stance. Much easier after that.|

I was told this has an R rating, maybe that's coming from a CT guide? The placement under the wing, for me, was a tipped out #2, the #3 wouldn't cut it. This was a flaring placement behind an obviously moving and broken block. Opting to skip this, my gear placements were: smallest cam I own - second smallest cam I own - .75 in a polished downward flaring moss terrarium - a double length runner sling of the horn above the wing (questionable to move on). This leads to runout R terrain with only a micronut placement between you and the finish. I backed down and was happy I could make that choice.
I tried to keep my gear description above, ambiguous, while still telling of what this climbs gear is actually like. Not for the beginning leader. Loose and suspect rock everywhere. My 5.6 Rating comes from the delicate 1-2 moves of fifth class ~10' up from the start. The rest is surely 5.5 or less.
