While this climb could be led, and even has a bolt at the crux (but not at the time of the FA apparently), I've listed it as a TR for two reasons: it would be a very bold lead (if you avoided the better holds and placements on the adjacent route), and because it's an eliminate. You have to work hard not to use the holds on Veils of Illusion.

Despite all of that, it's a fun workout on a TR and has some thin and delicate moves of a style found in many places in Squamish.

To lead it would require dicey thin wire placements, I would think. The bolt at the crux would take a big load off your mind. I'm speculating since I haven't, and don't plan to lead it. The bolts at the top of Veils work for this climb too.
