With 4 rests! None of the moves was particularly hard, but it's steep and sustained, with dubious protection for the traverse. HVS 4c probably gives a better idea what it's like to climb

Strenuous. Needed a rest before the traverse.

Thought about the direct, but far too pumped (boxed!). Traverse off right is worrying.
