Or to lead, bring a set of wires, and cams to a #1 camalot. Save the .75 for the top, as you don't really need it before then. Make sure to get your hand sequence right down low and a bomber nut, otherwise into the tree for you! Up high near the topout two ways to finish, the offwith crack direct, or by using "the secret hold" (not going to tell you where if you don't already know) which makes the finish a bit easier.

One of my favorite leads at the Lake!

lead this climb onsight...took everything i had to pull the crux move ( which i believe is only about 10 or so feet off the deck) in the dl guidebook climb rated as a 5.7 the falcon guide gave it a 7+ which i felt was def more appropriate...

Finish up the left face gives this great climb a sting in the tail at 10a. With super solid gear.
