Uncertain re line of finish. Got two moves higher 24 Sept on correct line (Rockfax is wrong, showing finish right of shield) but still couldn't figure last long link move to top-out flutings...

This is pretty go-ey. Really enjoyed the moves and despite being runout it never seemed too taxing mentally. Cool route!
