3 out of 5 stars Good pro, hard lead

Ah the first trad lead that I've had to rely on my gear. Harder to hang and place for the first 20 feet, but excellent protection with nuts.

Onsight Onsight ascent by: saxfiend on 2006-08-19 (View Climbing Log)

5 out of 5 stars Never lets up

This is easily the most difficult lead I've ever done. If I were rating it, I'd give it a 5.9 (at least for leading). On the one hand, it's good holds all the way up; on the other hand, there's no rest stops or easy stances for placing pro. It just never lets up for a second until you're near the top, by that time your arms are on fire. Onsighting this with no takes or falls was a matter of sheer willpower, and it made me feel real good. I would give this route two stars and highly recommend it to 5.8 trad leaders wanting to push your limits.
