Description:

This is a direct start to Fleet Feet. Instead of climbing the corner/flakes at the usual Fleet Feet start, climb the face left of the corner/flakes past the bolt to the second bolt of Fleet Feet proper.

4 out of 5 stars Thin

This would be a pretty scary lead - 10ish moves get you up through the face and over the little roof but then a couple more very thin moves are required to get you to what is likely your first gear in a short crack below the first bolt. Not sure if you could get any gear in the little gash at the base of the roof... it'd be a rough steep fall all the way to the ground if you blew it going for the crack.

Still, it's a fun and easy to set TR from the anchors on Fantastic. Pretty brutal crystal crimping and stepping on nothing, although hard to tell if we were going the right way all the time since the features/path is so faint. Had a little pressure bruise on my index fingertip from crushing the hell out of a couple of those crystal crimps.
