Last climb of the trip! Absolutely shattered! Was a bit cold, and everyone else was sounding a bit down! Great route though. First bolt is high and awkward! Got a bit pumped just below the flake, took a rest just over on the left. Moves up the flake are easy, but a bit run out. Last move is on lovely flowstone, went up and left on a good undercut. A great trip!
