I recommend not leading this one. It has some detached blocks that could pull off during a fall onto a cam placed behind them; one block down low that is a necessary large edge for your hands and feet
and another larger one up high that looks detached. Unfortunately the route would be runout if not putting pro in the crack to the left of the upper block. The one bolt protecting the somewhat runout section of slab to the anchor is a rusted 1/4" or 5/16" buttonhead with a stainless SMC hanger (mismatched metals = galvanic corrosion). There is also quite a bit of vegetation and dirt. I had to
dig out placements for gear. Might be a nice route if cleaned up. Easily toproped after leading "Slip on Slime" to the left. Jun 19, 2017
