phlegathoa start. Felt a little nervous after seeing someone deck from the end of the Saliva traverse 5 minutes before I got on this. It also took me ages to suss out the crux move. Hot day and I waited for a cloudy patch before jettisoning my rack and going for it. had to dyno for the break as it was too hot and greasy to get anything out of the shitty intermediates and pebbles.
