Did the bottom thrutchy half but failed on the upper bit. Couldn't manage it with only one rock shoe. The moves were nice but I didn't want to commit to the finish as my right foot was rolling off the edges. The top bit is the best bit of the route.

Bit of a grovel. Top crack (offwidthy really) would be difficult to fall out of even if you tried. (once lodged inside it of course!)
