Second go. Onsight attempt was a protracted affair. I was silly enough to finish up the 6b, then had to downclimb it, unclipping as I went, to get back on the line, only to follow chalk off to the right of the undercling and run out of holds. Muppet. If I had any route finding skills (see bolts, follow bolts..) it would probably have gone onsight. Felt pretty soft for the grade.

realy cool and slightly to easy for the grade i think but good climbing on it just walked up to it with no beta at all and sent it but needs another bolt at the top
