Very interesting and fun lead with all the pockets. I'd like to do this again but use only tri-cams.

A committing lead for the grade, with a start that felt harder than 5.6. Keep your cool while you search for the solid and protectible pockets (there are a lot of pockets with thin walls that I wouldn't trust in a fall). Large cams help down low (I used a #4 C4 as my first piece). Most of the rest protects well with TCUs or tricams, although the protection gets pretty marginal in the last 12 feet or so.

3 out of 5 stars Um, yeah

Toproped it because I was skeptical about getting gear on the top half. Felt more like a 5.7 to me.
