Very powerful start, couldn't work out where to clip second bolt from. Otherwise rest seemed ok, cool route

Hard start and loose key jug meant I did bother to try the RP. Climbs really well.

send 2nd go, Dinbren is hard to onsight stuff. Really good climbing. in the guidebook this gets 7a+ but I thought it was more on the 7b realm
