4 out of 5 stars good route

Felt easier than 5.8. Lead the second pitch (Opening moves were the crux of this short and easy pitch).

3 out of 5 stars had to bail :/

we must have missed something or just chickened out right after the little ledge 50' up where the chimney gets to be only like 12"...
we couldn't find any pro and it would've been 25 foot runnout (without big bro's)

did we miss something or just pansies?? lol
