I decided that I could lead this after watching clausti. Took a small fall at the crux, tried the crux move a couple of times by lowering to the ground each time, and then decided that in the interest of time and in order to preserve some remainders of my partners' good mood and give him a chance to try his project (yeah, those were the only reasons... not that i was freaked out, or anything... :/ ) i should use rope tension to get set for the move. And oh, did I use it! But I am still glad that i decided to lead it, because the picture would not have been any prettier on a toprope-- I would have been freaking out and asking for tension, except it would have been much harder to get it on toprope.
The rest of the climb is much easier. I would like to come back to this climb for sure.
