Good route, good gear, crux at top.

Too short to reach starting crimp, too weak/heavy to make crux pull - winched up!!

Felt very hard for 5c, as well as sustained, took a bad fall from near the top and damaged my wrist.

fell a couple of times on early moves, bypassed the move to the right hand flake by moving up high probably reduces the difficulty at the start.

via some undercut trickery - satisfying but high enough that the mats look very small!

Tried couple of years ago but couldn't commit to the crux. Much better than it looks.

Had a mat for this one. Still, it felt pretty far away at the top. Got it second go.
