Enjoyable - not least because it's one of the few probs on this buttress not reachy for the short! Started fairly far right (before Black Hole) and finished up crack but still felt easy for the grade.

Unless I started in the wrong place this felt very easy. Dan fell off though so maybe just my thing

Considering I'd been doing a lot of falling off Ft6a's that day, this one felt relatively easy (Ft6a+)... Nice problem though.
