3 out of 5 stars Felt easier today

Both cruxes felt easier today. Not that I would want to lead it. After you are done with second crux you still have some gear free climbing to accomplish.

4 out of 5 stars Tricky

Two cruxes; second one was much harder for this shorty. I knew what I had to do, just didn't feel like doing it. Wandered back and forth, committed to the move and it was over. Not sure I would like leading this with gear at feet.
