4 out of 5 stars Linked into Cardiac Bypass

Nice fist to off-width, then link up with the 10c cardiac bypass variation finishing on Cardiac arete anchors. Better commit to those sloping feet up top!

4 out of 5 stars "Five Seven my a$$"

I hung for 15 minutes at the crux (getting around the overhang) on a #11 hex before figuring out some way to continue. My second (a solid 5.9 trad leader) commented that he didn't think it was possible to lead this route. Obviously we are missing something here - I'll figure it out eventually.
