3 out of 5 stars Better to toprope this one!

After many straightforward TR laps over the years, I decided it was time to lead this bad boy. It didn't turn out well. Basically you have one small cam opportunity to save your ankles/legs from the starting ledge. I thought I could do better than that and ripped two pieces when I came off.
