first go when I returned once the temperature dropped and friction had improved but didn't expect to get it. Useful beta on using a small crimp after getting the good hold saved matching and was probably an easier/only sequence anyway.

Agree it's a bit overgraded, does depend on your ability with knee bars and a long reach helps. Sweet moves though and not all over at the traverse line!
