Good climbing good moves such a good route

Hmm, found a move on the bottom half incredibly powerful. Going to be tricky.

Absolute punter. Kept falling off an easy move going to the second bolt. Pathetic. Have been told I was using crap beta so perhaps there is hope.

Third go. Felt ok once I knew the moves. Didn't need a clip stick. A new grade for me! Suitably bouldery with reachy powerful moves.

1st RP, 1 session. Not too bad with a heel on 1st crux and big drop knee higher up.

Almost got it in a session after making a big link on my last burn but fluffed the crux! Came back and did it second go with some sneaky new beta!
