|Nice work, Steve!|

Mark Hammond (and I and other folks) TR'd this line a few years back when we were establishing Backslash, which ends at the same tree. But as far as I know, none of us ever had the gumption to lead it, so it's great to see it get done (and ground-up, too!). As I recall, we thought the crux bulge might be harder than 5.10+, but Steve would know best.
Back up the little tree for TR'ing or belaying the second.

|Nice, fun climbing and good position, good gear when you have it, challening and somewhat sustained at the grade. A fine addition to this 'sandbag alley' area, thanks for your effort Steve and Greg.|

Good work Steve and Greg. Really nice climbing. I guess I shouldn't have waited 3 years to get back to lead this, although it would have been a headpoint for me, the onsight is prouder. I was going to call it El Nino and blame the delay on parenthood.
FYI, I gardened a bunch of mud out of the perfect cam (green Alien, I recall) placement right after the crux. It felt 11a to me, but I'm not too strong.
Steve, let's get out and do some book research, I have another line to show you.
