A difficult sequence is required to gain a good hold out right. Make more tricky moves to hopefully reach the ledges above and continue with care to a lower-off. © ROCKFAX

1 failed flash attempt and then got it first redpoint - lots of deceptive holds but fine once figured out. Worth two stars I'd say, nice moves.

Got sequence sorted on second toprope attempt then went for it on lead. Unfortunately hesitated too long at top crux and ran out of steam but should go next time.
