Couldn't figure out how to do the reach on lead, much easier on top rope knowing about the holds out left

Great climb, good jug and or positive holds all the way with some big rock overs and high step moves. Best route of the day.

Worked the dyno crux going over bulge on TR then when I had the balls to go for the lead I found another hold for the left hand slightly higher up and did the move static and cruised the rest of the problem. Nice rest finger jamming in the horizontal cracks

Tough move - couldn't quite reach it static, had to do little dyno. Failed on first attempt of this and burnt my leg on the rope.

Tricky move over the bulge, easier when you know where the holds are.
