Description 

Start 15 ft right of the Slippery When Wet crack. Make a few thin moves up to a nice horizontal, continue up and left to another horizontal and up to the top.

Protection 

Typically toproped, but a reasonable lead for a solid 5.9 leader. The crux is well protected. Small to medium cams.

This is actually a really nice and adequately protectable lead for someone solid in the grade. I think I used a couple c4's in horizontals with a green alien to protect the crux.
