The bottom of this is the crux but if you lead it know you have nothing but bad placements until you are 15+ feet up. I gave this an on-sight lead attempt and my first piece, being questionable, pulled and I broke my foot with a sprained ankle on the side. This climb is not a moderate 5.9 and Not a beginner lead.
