Really nice route, but didn't have the strength or figure out the moves for the final crux move.

Nice little climb. Was last climb of the day and couldn't clip the lower off :-(. Felt pretty stiff if you stick to the grove.

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

A climb well above anything I've climbed before outside. A nice climb which becomes very thin and technical at the end.
