Really good lead. Interesting moves throughout and new leaders will feel committed with the lack of gear until the top of the ramp at the start. There is a fixed(bomber) .3 C4 cam low on the route.

Fixed gear is gone. Unfortunately, some asshole chipped out a big section of the flake that the gear was placed under in order to retrieve the gear. The route's difficulty is unchanged.
