5 out of 5 stars Ascent Note

This was my virgin First Ascent lead. It is a very short climb, even by Peterskill standards, but hey - you've got to start somewhere, and I had only 3 leads under my belt at the time. Cleaning away dirt and cobwebs and such definitely takes leading to a different level, if I dare say so with such limited experience. Anyway, I hope you will try the thing, and let me know what you think. We came to a consensus of 5.4, so I will appreciate your input on that too. If needed I'll update the grade. That said, the climb can be done stemming with the wall on the right, or straight on, for a more pumpy climb. I was happy to find that it wasn't as easy as I first thought it would be; I told my cohorts that I thought it was 5.2, and maybe even 5.1. They had never helped with an FA before and though there was only a little bit of dirt to sling......I wonder if they will be interested when I hatch a plan for another fixer-upper.
