Great route - technical and powerful. The pinch finally dried!

Finally, the final holds dried from dripping to merely wet! Utterly brilliant route. The crux groove is sustained and powerful with nary a moment that doesn't feel desperately tenuous and untoward (8a if there were any hardish moves before or after the meat?). Could do with a few of the bolts lowering by 0.5m.

Excellent route, don't know why it doesn't get more attention!

Briefly tried a few years ago, but too dirty. 1st RP. Qual.
