Like it says, intense early on. Just keep powering on. Easy to get gear in below overhang- small cams. Not particularly polished. Not sure what the comments below are on about.

Tricky to get gear in below first overhang. Steady climbing up flake after overhang. Straight forward finish up left of wall. Short route.

Extremely polished
