Bechler was under the impression that this hadn't been lead before, isn't that the story?

Great shot! Great effort Kris! What's the gear placement at your feet?

Thanks guys! The gear at my foot is a green C3 (purple C3 fits too, or both). I believe it's probably X cause the handhold where C3 sits would likely break if you fell from the move for the horizontal (that's a deck). When I yanked on the purple C3 (on TR), the rock busted, so I didn't want to experiment further and lose the hold.

I wouldn't even consider this lead if Rich Bechler hadn't told me, before he passed, to get my sorry ass to lead it. He also said this hadn't been led before but you never know with the Lake.

Keep killin' it bro! The lake never stops inspiring it seems...
As far as lead history don't know, but Jim M. told me he soloed it (and had a close call).
