This is a good lead with at least pg gear. Follow the crack,gear, and head for the left facing corner up top. To get full value,climb the arete of the corner on top. Or bail to left for easy finish.

"...at least pg gear..." Yup...this lead is about as "G" as they come. You can plug gear in prodigiously along the entire route including up the top arÍte. It may be a little hard for new 5.7 leaders to place gear (one-handed stances) but it takes bomber gear if you are competent at placing it.
