Nice work! This just reminded me that I'll have to come out and lead it (on mostly gear) this season.

I was able to find a small nut before the run to the chains that reduces the length of the fall potential.... Nice job leading this one on gear!

Gear beta. I thought the blue/green Alien protected the crux pretty reasonably. I did use an afternoon to redpoint while clipping bolts. Came back a few weeks later and gave it one gear beta burn then went for it second go. Might be facing groundfall potential after the crux getting to the first rest. Then an exciting run to the chains with bomber #2 below the roof. Would be a big but probably safe fall.
