This was one of my first trad leads in the year 2000, it made many 5.7's after it seem easier.
I added chain where there was a bunch of old webbing before.

First day leading 5.7s and first time at Tieton, so thought to give this a try, after leading the highly rated 5.7s at the Royal Columns, Definitely more difficult, but enjoyable.

Nice and straight forward in the beginning, but thinned out at the top 3/4. Smaller crack and smaller holds. Got my blood flowing and fumbling for gear to get a quick rest. Probably made it more difficult than it needed to be. Stemming at the top is the key.
