Took me a few attempts to stick the top hold, didn't help that I only had approach shoes and no chalk.

Loved this route. I am only short (5' 7") and this is not normally my kind of thing, but with a good high left foot and a bit of technique, easy static reach to the top edge with the left hand. Did this 4 times for fun :)
