I thought this was harder than the first pitch of Embankment 2. Enjoyable though.

The moves out right were trickier than expected leading to getting pumped and falling on the thankfully bomber cam in the overhanging flake. Since I'd blown it by this point, I felt no shame pulling on the metal peg. Aim to do again clean some time. 6
