This a great little DL lead for the grade. Fairly hard and the pro is all good except maybe the first 10 feet. Great crux with good small wires to protect. I like the varied nature of the climbing on this route all packed into 50 feet.

Climbed better than it looked. On OS I took a nice whipper on a #00 C3, smallest piece of pro I've ever fell on. Protected well except for the dirty first 10 feet, I think skip that and start on the slot in the horizontal one ledge up.

Tricky movement in the crux!

Ha!

Lead this this Saturday past in 90 temps and pretty high humidity and the crux, not so oddly, became not slim'n out of the upper hand jams. A hand towel attached near the chalk bag a great idea!
