Description:

Thin moves and scant pro at the start make this a challenging lead. Starts 5' right of Black Sabbath. Move up the blank face to an undercling, then move right and up a finger crack to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Scary lead

Toproped this after Denmark led it. I think this one would be a pretty scary lead.
