Missed a good clipping hold on the onsight, so I took a hang. Got it clean on the second go. A few strenuous moves up and over the bulge, then easy climbing.

Climbed slightly to the right making an easier ascent. It took three attempt to figure out the moves. Was tired so rested near the top. Very stiff!
