Tough onsight, barely made it up this one. Spent about half an hour on this route, moving up and down between rests. The first crux for me was stabbing into the upside down two finger pocket, then the second crux just needed a bit of commitment.

1st go: oh dear, not at all relaxed - had to lower in middle of first stamina section 2nd go: done! nervous as anything on this however. the crux moves were cool and the pop to the pocket felt close. such a good route - reason to sport climb!

1st go: onsight attempt and i fell 6M or so when heading left at first tricky part. i followed chalk and should have gone direct 2nd go: 4 attempts before i decided to try direct which was fine then about 10 gos to do crux which seemed pretty unlikely and very 'out there'. final move took 4 gos but this was maybe down to my emotional state more than anything, so exposed up there! superlative route, stamina climbing with a definite crux to think about as you shake out: get on it!
