4 out of 5 stars Interesting Warm Up

Came to do this as a warmup. It was windy and cold and everything felt really insecure. It was my first lead of the season and I probably could have made a better choice but everything ended up alright and by the end of the climb I could feel my fingers again.

Dude...I did enjoy this route, my first time up it, actually on any route in Boulder Canyon. Just one attempt and Mr. Seymour led and did a great job at encouraging me up my first 5.8
