Almost, got this first attempt. First two clips committing and pumpy, just couldn't quite get comfy for the 3rd clip. HVS 5b trad grade is insane, E1 6b more like!

A long pull to a poor hold and then a high step up to the left see's youto the first bolt. There isa good hold over the bulge if you reach far back and right. However I clipped the third bolt from the left by doing a balancy move up to the left and then reversing...
