This a hard lead. The gear is there but at your feet in a few places.
This thing looks easier then it is. It gets harder and harder the higher and higher you go...

First lead Steve Sangdahl and Rob Lemon 1982. This one was hard. I remember old Rob was worried I was gonna rip gear and land on him. I assured him it was better if I landed on him than the ground and that he would be fulfilling his belayer obligations to the highest level. Rob wasn't buying it. Rob was a great friend and true DLFA character,he passed away a few years ago. He was a Buddhist at heart. Can we name this something other than viagra? I propose "The Dali Lama". Hope that doesn't sound blasphemous. RIP Rob.
