5.10+ liebacking up a delicate vertical flake leads to awesome, very thin face climbing past three bolts. Fantastic and one of the longest routes at Woodson.

4 out of 5 stars I finally got my PhD!

After going up there for this thing on occasion, I finally lead it. I figured out an awesome piece of beta that allowed for light use of the mono (my old crux) and immediately decided to lead it. I did lead it bolts only, figuring gear behind that flake might just blow it off...
