4 out of 5 stars Weird Pitch

Lead this in one pitch (just because there is a ledge every 50 feet doesn't mean the pitches have to be broken up that way). The first half was fun, a little strange, the second half after the ledge was fun but it felt harder than 5.9. Maybe I was tired, it being the end of the day but I swear those moves felt like 5.10b.

Only did first-pitch of this one, the second pitch was a little hard to find, but we're going back to do it again.
