My old nemesis from 15 years ago bites again. Managed to get to the good break this time, but missed the good hold out up left and couldn't get enough rest with the holds I did have to place a small friend in the top of the crack before the final push to the top. Fell off trying without and almost hit the ledge. Found the rest hold second time and completed the route. Ace climb. Will return to lead ground up first time next time.
