Great route! Took a bit of work, but finally strung it together. My Belayer worked it afterwards and shed a hold down low, doesn't affect the grade but still looking pretty loose just to the left of the first bolt.

Put the draws in and sent it first go, Felt good today, got a cut up hand from the slot by the second bolt being a little sharp. Good fun route.
