BrownPants, we don't mean to make you angry...
...So it's not a move to make lightly. It's committing and if you haven't been on the route before, you don't know you can gear once you stand up, and it's not a great stance to fiddle a nut in from. I've personally downclimbed from that spot when I couldn't get something in fast enough. So it's by no means a gimme, but yeah, it can be done safely.
Whoops! I guess I got a little argumentative there..
Interesting gear beta, thanks. When I got up in that little corner, it just seemed so improbable that I would have the gas to hang out and figure out the gear. So I had to decide to either downclimb/hang-on-the-pin or just go for it and trust myself. That was why I thought it was exciting.
So maybe the route isn't exciting in and of itself, maybe it was just my approach to it.
