3 out of 5 stars Onsight

This lead made me glad I solo, other than the start the gear is finickey or non existent, and the flake seemed to wiggle a little bit causing me to doubt the gear I had placed. Seemed like the little gear I had placed was a waste of time.

Got to sling a horn though =) and that's always fun!

Apparently the "first person on that route in ten years." Clearly the ascent log shows differently.
