Failed to get to the first bolt. I'm guessing some holds have come off the start. Clipping the first bolt seems really hard unless you've got 8a finger strength and a fall from here would be nasty, bouncing down 15' of limestone ledges then down the slope into the nettles. Clipping the low bolt on the route to right would save you from the nettles but not the ledges. Since I doubt that this was the first ascentionist's intention I think an extra bolt in the start would make sense.
I later found out that a friend who had tried had the same problem.

Dogged to put clips in feeling pretty tired then put in an all-out effort, falling on the very last move to the jug totally spent. Sustained technical and crimpy.

fell off top with cold arms & hands.
bit damp, but worth coming back for. Pleased to get all moves together, the start at first felt quite improbable.

Amazing route, felt nails. Might have been because I was tired. Had to dog up it to work it out and clean it as it was very dirty. Nearly blew the redpoint at least three times. I started a bit left of the clip as straight up didn't seem like 7a+ (it appears there used to be hold there that has now gone).

No jug at the start made this really hard, did all the top moves though.
