Savage Amusement*** 7b
[LF on Savage Amusement, 3 kb]13m. A technical crux leads to easier climbing above. Another great line.

Climb the crack by small pockets and with difficulty pop for the deceptively poor flake and jam if you can. After this it should be all over, Oh Wait, there’s a sting in the tail.
Neil Shepherd Sep/1988

Got route from juggy rest at first clip to top clean. On RP attempts struggling to get the crux hold correctly. Some luck required for the send perhaps as the moves now feel Ok.
