The fragility of the flake directly off the belay makes this route actually dangerous to lead.

It is the rightmost of the easier upper-tier routes, right of Chili Dog (which is itself right of Double Delight). Therefore it does not start from the center of the ledge above Leap Year Flake. Mar 15, 2017

Yes, know going in that this is a dangerous route for both the leader and the belayer. With the fragility of the flake a fall would likely pull any piece out and the climber and sharp rock pieces would likely come down on the belayer. Mar 19, 2017
