That start to first bolt can't be a 5+, got to 2nd bolt from clue, so and set up top rope for start. Amazing climb look left of first bolt for a 2 finger hook

Clean on sight. Very hard start on sloping hand holds. Easier above. Slight run out between bolts 3 and 4.

Awkward start hawever, 1st boltcan be clipped fairly easily prior to starting the route. Possibly one of the better routes on the crag.
