was wet foot slipped at crux, but fell on ledge, high in the grade, especially when wet!

Slimy and wet crackline. Some loose rock Couldn't find a decent belay at the top. Unpleasant descent. Enjoyed the bridging though.

Good climbing, good protection, pretty tough and constant I thought. Deserves a star? In any case, take lots of small and ideally also micro nuts. I placed 8 of them.
