Went right at the top, think I made it much harder!

Behold81 04/Sep Lead dnf

Crux is certainly the last push. Out left seems the rout with a hand over hand roll through to finish. Up to there it's quite a sustained climb.

robbo99 29/Aug Lead dog

Rested at last bolt. Poor warmup route unless you know the final sequence

Bottom clean messed up the last move on the crux on the first try but got it on the second go. A nice route with a chance to rest a bit in the middle
