3 out of 5 stars Fail

Took my first trad lead fall on this route Sunday. Just about a foot higher than the guy in the pic. A bit shook up so I had to get a buddy to complete it for me. I took home a heap of humble pie that day. Next time is send time.

5 out of 5 stars Thin Pro

It took a while, but I finally got back to this one on lead. Great fun, a challenge to find the right pro for the available placements. Finally got to use my offset brassies (Astronuts)!

This is an excellent climb, with some nice variety between face climbing and crack. I think I'll be ready to lead it next time.
