Don\'t link p3 & 4, drag is un-manageable. Crux move on p3 is scary!

First attempt: after 1/2 year of leading, I whip on the scary 9+ pitch, smash my heel, retreat with tail between legs. Second attempt: two pitches, then the proverbial Lumpy thunderstorm. Third attempt: success!! Les did a great job on the 9+, and I took the crux, which contrary to some guidebook descriptions takes excellent rps at the crux. There is not a bad pitch on this route--5 stars!
