A lot of rope-leaning, and a lot of physical pain

Sat on rope at crux to work out the sequence - the crux holds are quite hidden from below the bulge, but got there in the end.

Brilliant route with crack, bulge and then random "shield" of rock! Wussed out of O/S but did moves in the end!

1 fall at the crux: an annoying lack of concentration as I didn't think it was particularly hard.

Great climbing, most powerful 6b i've ever climbed though, maybe there are more efficient ways with careful feet.
