Mary Messal on Sheila Tester. I guess she passed.

We bolted this even though both FAist have led it on gear, as ground fall potentional does exist.
So are you a Sheila or not, now you can choose.

Gear to 2.5 inches including small TCUs, or bolts, chains

Might be PG-13 if you decide to lead it on gear. Getting to the 2nd bolts is a little spicy if you go sport on it. Make sure your belayer is awake. I am used to climbing with a belayer that is asleep but I did wake him up for this move.

I guess I passed since I led it first on just my crappy rack, then again on just bolts. The 3rd bolt placement fails the Leona-test I think. 1.5 stars for me. I wouldn't recommend this as a first 5.10 lead regardless of protection method, but if you are solid at the grade it's pretty interesting.

You don't wanna lead this on just bolts.
