4 out of 5 stars Develop your lead head!

Kinda lame? Grow a pair! The climbing is easy but like the description says, protection is scant. I ran out the last 20 or so feet (its a 50-60ft route). The prospect of a groundfall from that height makes even a 5.6 scary. Just focus on the climb, remind yourself you're on a 5-frickin-6 and that you're not going to fall and you'll be fine.

Make sure you set a bomber directional at the bottom because if you fall your belayer had better be running away from the wall to take up slack. You'll need the directional to keep from zippering.
