Great bolt line up the dark grey wall right of 'Coronation Street' and 'Twilight...'.
Nicely sustained and technical.

Frustrating, fell off due to z clipping for the first time ever halfway through the crux rockover. Spent ages faffing at the top trying to work out how to use the terrible mono pockets, turns out there's a much simpler sequence to the right...

A couple more attempts at this route today. Nearly. Mid section has a deceptively tricky sequence.
