Decent climbing up to the groove then just a bit awkward. I think it struggles to merit a star unless I missed something. Ollie did well to 2nd.

Top groove is hard, but has one less loose hold now.

Thought it was solid for E2 5c, rather sustained with the crux, being well protected, pretty intense, mentally more than anything.

Onsighted the meat of the route which I hadn't been on before - steady moves on holds that could be better. It's Actually quite good, better than it sounds, and not that eliminate. Like Troillus LH you climb the arete (this time the LH one) more than than the groove, but it's still good.
