The start is considerably harder than the rest of the climb.

There is a rat that lives on the ledge below the anchors and to the right, chances are, it is as scared of you as you are of it.

The anchors suck. They are way behind your head and you have to pull out a giant arms length of slack to clip them in. The start and the finish is what gives this its difficulty.

Clipping anchors is a little akward.

Very hard to set anchors - I agree with the other comments to that effect. My first sport lead, though. =)
