Nice route, interesting bridging/chimney moves to get up to the crack, then a good rest before the tussle begins! Very rounded, awkward balance moves with some savage jamming possible.

first of the day, tough exit move.

Pulled a big hold off leading and got psyched out, Neil led it instead. Didn't enjoy it!
