Description:

Hands. Forty feet of em, dead vertical. Awkward gear anchor to set -- tends to jam ropes. Good choice for the aspiring 5.9 leader. Descend along ledges & ramps to the right (involved).

5 out of 5 stars Got stupid at the top

Should've sent without difficulty. Instead I psyched myself into nearly puking and blew the onsight (in fact the lead) entirely. Justin's gear beta was right on though.

1 #1 camalot
2 #2 camalots
1 #3 camalot.

Bolts could be better placed to serve just Plumb Line, but that's neither here nor there. The taped rock to keep the rope out of the crack is a nice touch though.

Awesome hand jams, a little awkward at the top, but great jams the whole way!
