Enjoyed this route, went directly up the crack, crux was moving up to the ledge. The crack at this point was full of cobwebs, don't think many do this route direct, noticed loads of chalk on the right

the crux move is interesting, with a hand in the narrow part of the crack. Long run-out between the last bolt and the lower-off.
