My wife handed over the lead to me and I said sure I'll give it a try. At the crux, I shouted down "I don't blame you for not wanting to do this!" I onsighted it but may have soiled myself ;) In all seriousness, though, if 5.9 is your limit, you shouldn't do this unless it's worth a trip to the hospital.
(Way back when...) We knew this route was a "right of passage" and I thought I could pull it off. Jen busted her nose on an attempt and Finlay soloed it. Locals were doing it so often, it truly had a reputation. I was determined, so I got some beta from Wendall and followed the route a couple of times. Then I led the route and scared myself silly all the way to the belay - which was the tree on the ledge 30+ feet above the present belay. This is an exemplary route for those who want to experience high quality thin Red Rock face. Easily topropable.......(Is that a word?)
