Super fun lead. You get to clip a pretty solid fixed pin at the crux. I think this is a sand bag at 5.7. Ha!

I concur that this is a sandbag, and do not agree on the "solid" fixed pin! I pulled on the draw a bit that Burt clipped to it and watched it Flex! Maybe i'll go and replace it next time I am up that way.
