Last tried 3 years ago when it was a fairly big project. Nice to see I found it a lot easier today. Such a lovely climb that I didn't mind leading it again just to collect quickdraws from the 6a+ on the left

With two rests - good sustained face climbing - not my style, however.

Felt very hard, perhaps as it was the seventh route! Lowered off three times before unlocking the move - still feel it was a fair onsight.
