The traverse is now dry, but the groove is still too wet.

Bomber fist jams really help control the pump on the top section.

absolutely horrendous, swam in to the ledge at the bottom and did the climb soaking wet. Felt like I was about to slide off every move.

Amazing route. Finally suceeded aafter several attempts over several years of being pumped out and greased off. Traversed in from the corner. There aint no holds in the final groove!
