Description

Probably the nicest trad line at Leda. Great pro all the way makes some of the dicey moves more mentally bearable.

Start as for Free to Think, bouldering up through the juggy roof to a ledge. Move left to the obvious crack in the left face; follow this feature as it turns into a short, awkward off-width. After negotiating the off-width, continue up the thinning finger crack, saving some reserves for a juggy but pumpy roof move at the finish.

Location

Shares start with Free to Think, about 15' left of Speedway Boogie.

Protection

Mostly small to medium gear, though at least one big cam will be necessary in the off-width section. Ring anchors at the top.

You can actually forego the big stuff. Boulder up to the ledge, walk left and put a piece or two in. Climb up into the offwidth - hard to fall out - put in a piece at the top before pulling the fingerlock and getting established in the upper crack and face. Wish the upper part was about 50 feet longer. Jun 6, 2010

If you're short on trad gear, you can toprope this route by climbing one of the neighboring sport routes (fanfair, speedway boogie) and traversing the ledge to the anchors. Same for "Free To Think". Aug 27, 2010

Beautiful crack, that climbs as good as she looks. The crux is finding it without top ropers that walked over from Speedway. Aug 20, 2012

Awesome squeeze with some slightly hidden crimps that help with the ascent. Finagle your way out of the OW and clamber through the finger locks to jugs.

IMHO, this is one of the best routes at LEDA, whether trad or TR Aug 23, 2012
