Comments: Should have read the comments better before leading. I didn't bring any pro and after the 3rd bolt I wished I had something to place under the small ledge below the chains. A fall going over this would get you close to the ground if your belayer came off the ground. Thankfully the holds get significantly better at and above the ledge so it isn't a dealbreaker if you don't have any trad gear on you. Maybe only a problem for a novice like me.

Comments: Lead "going bald" first, pulled the rope and lead this second. I felt this was nearly as challenging a lead as the upper portion is a little polished and there are a few spots with 2 finger crimpers and small foot edges. The first bolt is shared with "going bald, but this creates a big zig zag in your rope. After clipping the second bolt, I slid over and removed the first draw so my belayer was directly below me and not standing next to the water.
