5 out of 5 stars One of the BEST ever climbs!

At the time, this was one of my best trad leads. I got to the lip on my onsight attempt. Lowered after falling, pulled my rope and led it second go. If the piton is still there under the roof, I'd back it up for sure with a cam in the big roof flake!

5 out of 5 stars Fun to lead!
