Nice route. Looks run out to the first bolt but you can get fairly good gear in before it. Nearly had the chance to try out just how good the gear was when a hold peeled off in my hand as I was rocking up to the first bolt! Luckily had just rocked over into the balance point so wobbled out from the wall slightly but pulled myself back in. It was only a small ripples in the rock that I was using mainly for balance and it hasn't changed the grade/nature of the climb. The rock at the start is much more suspect than on See You Bruce and lots of care is required! The climbing is very cruxy but the hard moves are well protected by bolts (except getting to the first bolt). I thought the last crux moves were extremely thin on feet and small for hands for a couple of moves and felt hard for 6a to me! The climbing isn't super easy between bolts and it is fairly run out but the moves are positive and it didn't feel as bold as I thought it looked as I lowered off!

3 bolts in 27m...nice! Top roped first as the run-out to the first bolt was a bit worrying. The lead went fine in the end,difficult sections were all by bolts.
