5 out of 5 stars nearly barfed from fear

this lead was the scariest single pitch experience of my life. My hands are slightly too big for perfect jams all the way and I had two marginal pieces before the crux. I think a slight breeze kept me on route.

5 out of 5 stars Finding the Jams

Wow, they call it texas crude for a reason. Some days it is slick as oil! After taking a 15 footer off of it, went back and got it clean. Great offset flaring crack with varying sizes from thin hands to fists in the back.
