Needed umpteen goes to get the sequence spot on. Missed the RP narrowly. Pulled on the left crimp so hard i got 2 blood blisters.

Eventually pieced together a sequence, going from the mid-way good left crimp direct for the right pinch near the top, with a tug on an intermediary and careful foot adjustments. 7a+? Will redpoint. Very challenging to unlock!

Put draws in then RP. Missed a massive undercut on first go. Only had first preclipped, so clipped second after crux. Soft?

Still don't think it's more than 6c+. Took some time on the rope, but wired the sequence so well I spent time looking for a big mattress so I could solo it. Still love the route.
