[Hide Comment] For me, the crux was the first few moves get to above the little roof. Sep 15, 2011

[Hide Comment] Rock is pretty hollow at the start. Maybe not the best 5.9 for a 5.9 leader due to rock quality and nature of gear placements. Be solid at the grade and enjoy! May 29, 2012

[Hide Comment] I would've been happier with a #5 Camalot to protect the upper dihedral. Aug 27, 2012
