Eric Sutton was the first to lead this in the late '80s to show that it could be lead (when someone was talking about bolting it). I have also lead it, and it is OK if you have it wired but definitely not a good onsight lead!

I definitely recommend sussing the gear first. I found it to be quite reasonable and safe to lead once I knew what was going where. Great rock climb.
