Avoided the chipped hold but it meant I was slightly to the left of where the route was supposed to go, I still feel it gets the grade though as it wasn't so far left to be on the next route along. ARG CHIPPED HOLDS!

Avoided the chipped hold for the right foot. Then repeated without the high crimps (palming only), then repeated sans le mains, except for the top out jug).
