4 out of 5 stars One fine onsight

I found the toughest part of the lead was getting good gear at the roof without burning up some of my bigger cams for higher up, all the while not being able to put all my weight on my feet to suss it out. I ended up with two cams equalized at the lip of the roof for my first pieces and then cruised on. The actual crux moves where in the middle in the short vertical section. A couple of moves and it's over. Placed a #5 at the top to protect the offwidth which was still fairly easy climbing. I felt it was a solid climb to onsight though.

4 out of 5 stars dare to be stupid

Actually, it's a fine climb I just like paring such an uber-macho name with a Weird Al reference...

Our group felt their were 2 cruxes, although we were split on which was the more difficult. There is a short (5-8 feet?) handcrack that can be done as a layback about mid-way up that I didn't fancy and later is an offwidth section near the topout that caused some upset for others in our group. Seemed like a nice mix and a somewhat burly lead but great gear the whole way. Save a big cam (4 or 5?) for the offwidth.
