5 out of 5 stars Wild Ride

Really exciting lead. 2nd clip is scary and insecure. The upper section was a blast!

4 out of 5 stars hard P1

Fell off this sucker repeatedly working a mock lead. Fun moves but boy were they sustained. Tricky footwork and stemming to get up to the dihedral crack and then really stiff moves up the corner. It's a bit easier if you switch to a higher crack on the left side about midway up - I kept failing on the tiny crimps but was determined that it could be done.

A terrifying lead I'm sure. A TR got set up by someone who worked part of Shrimp Coctail and then switched to this when that line got kind of vague.

4 out of 5 stars Hmmm

Good route that switches character after the roof. Like others have said a sketchy lead for sure.

2 out of 5 stars Meh

Not really leadable for an onsight unless you rage really hard, even then it's sketchy. Top roped it off the Seal. Physical bottom followed by technical top.
