IN THE WORDS OF RICK......"NICE LEAD"
Nice lead can mean you lead the climb gracefully. But, it can also mean:
In the case of Lean and Languid - Rick told me "nice lead" and that he was glad he didn't lead that, and that I got through a shit climb and didn't fall, injure myself (or him), or die. So yes, I'll take that "nice lead!"
