Really good climb, failed at the final budge on my first go. Got it cleanly the second time. Loads of bolts!

Very hard crux at top, really enjoyable up to there. See Evernote for beta.

Went for onsight and got pretty close. The crux moves getting over the bulge are not too difficult, but they are when you're pumped out your mind.

Very hard fingery crux especially if you're short

Flipping desperate crux! Felt harder than Monkey Wall.

clean past the tufa section but not enough juice to get over the bulge... didn't try again for the RP

Was very close but ran out of steam after a big (but fun) fall on top section.

Got wrong handed near the top and slumped onto the rope, got straight back on and did it right that time.
