I remember watching my partner lead this and "rest" by using the pin as a handhold for a second while he fumbled for a draw. My disapproval faded as I began to second the pitch. And then disappeared-while I tried to figure out how to remove the draw without weighting the rope or grabbing the pin myself. On second.
One of the most tenuous .11a's I've ever been on, with some thought provoking gear.

I agree. It's more like 11c. 11a would be a considerable sandbag
