1. Poison ivy bush at the base.
2. Too short.
3. Filthy and unprotected start.
4. Big bushes in your face while trying to reach the dihedral.
5. The pin wiggles.
6. You can get your rope stuck in the crack when exiting onto the slab.
7. You will smell like bird urine when finished.
8. And last but not least: it's a massive sandbag!!!
You can back up the pin with some small brass. A couple of really hard stemming moves lead to a short hand crack (#1 or #2 Camalot or both). These moves are the crux, but it stays tough until you get to the lip. After the #2, a couple of nuts and a #0.5 at the lip will get you safely up. There are two big bomber nuts for an anchor, but the cord is pretty crusty.
