What Dylan? The days are not long enough in July? Just kidding...
Nice job. Is that THE gear on this route? Anything else higher?

Nice lead. I always wanted to lead that route... but I think a solo would be more appropriate with some TR rehearsal. Way to get it!

Burt, this was an after-work evening trip, this was about 10:15pm I think, last climb of the day. This is not the only gear on the route, and a lead is a fair bit less dangerous than a solo, as there is a ball-nut placement in the horizontal right before the final crux move that is quite good, and I felt the one well-protected move on the whole route would be the easiest one to screw up.

Small gear behind a hollow flake, and me glad for all of the top-rope practice that preceded this lead. Also, the camera flash makes it look much brighter than it actually was. Photo: Jason McKeefry.
