This is a really fun route, especially with the Penny Candy linkup.
It would make a nice lead except for the very sketchy and dangerous start. And judging by only one "lead" in the Tick list I don't think I'm the only one who thinks this.
I'll probably get flak for saying this, but as the route already has 2 bolts, adding a third bolt right by the boldery start does not seem to me to be out of order. Yes, you can get a piece of gear in there, but it's not a great placement and it's also where a critical finger jam is. Is it dumbing down the route? possibly. But I think it's better to have people leading routes than just TR'ing them.
I'm sure it would get a lot more leads if that extra bolt was there. Just a thought.
