foobar123 5 Dec, 2017 Lead β Not convinced I can claim the onsight on this as I was told to go left at the crux. This led to a rest, but a possibly harder move right to get back into the crack involving matching a fingerlock and yarding hard with both hands. Not as sustained as the guidebook made it out to be.
