Second session. Had the benefit of the morning shade. Sent just before the sun came round. The crux move went statically with left thumb in the mono pocket and eventually pressing down with my right thumb in the shallow pocket feature. The long finishing moves are quality. Thanks to Lord Thornbury for the belay and bro out shenanigans.

Superb. Been wanting to try this for ages. Might not have gotten far without some local beta!

Being short, I remember turning the pocket into an undercut (and smearing) ... Great route.
