I continue being unable to climb this route, still not sure which way it goes around the arete, down a bit, no?

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.
