Went okay in the end: left hand to a pocket, high right foot and a good right hand crimp before a quick traverse (no climbing down) leading to a very long right-hand reach. The two short sequences are harder than any part of Nihil but easy climbing both before and after make it hard 7a+, perhaps a soft 7b.

Not 7a+... unless you were to use the start of Nihil maybe? Need to investigate the possibility of a traverse left after the clip tomorrow as the next reach is insane!

Very good climbing though the bolts are a bit spaced out. If I wanted to be scared I'd have been down the ruckle!
