There is a good spot for a BD C4 #0.4 in the crack directly to the left of his right hand (maybe 3ft ish above the climbers placement in the pic). I suppose it's preference but that lower crack he's putting th .3 in seemed a little flared and I felt better about the higher placement keeping me off the ground in case I blew the move. I lead this for the first time yesterday. really fun route.

Thanks for the tip, Jacob. I'll be sure to look for that #0.4 placement next time. You might be right that the higher #0.4 might be a safer placement, based on what I recall about the #0.3 placement lower down. On the other hand, I thought getting to the stance shown in the photo was the crux of the whole route, so it may not matter too much.

"The climber's placement in the pic"? Huh? I don't see any gear anywhere. Nor, presumably, does the belayer.

Poor choice of words in my caption. I think I placed the #0.3 where my left hand is in this photo shortly after it was taken.
