|I seconded this... This route, like a lot of slab routes in LCC has bolts above good stances and pretty good run outs (PG-PG13). I think this would be a heck of an exciting lead! And I don't want to try it any time soon.|

|Good lead, I had an extra buddy give a spot, just to push me away from the abyss should I have fallen before the first bolt, but it's pretty easy to there. I wonder if some of those flakes have broken off on the wall to the right of the arete cause I was like 5.10b??? But maybe it was just sequential cause when I finally nailed it, I just cruised. That third bolt is way solid. I checked it many times before I knew what was up!|

1 star? 2 stars? WTF? This thing is great.
Yeah, I don't know about the 10b rating either. It is a little bit of an exciting lead. Getting to the first bolt is not that bad. It is nice to have a runner to tie off the chickenhead above the third bolt as it is your last piece of protection. I don't remember seeing places for gear.
