The Pugilist*** E4 6a
Hard, brutally pumpy climbing up the MM groove then out to the very steep arete above a rusty peg. The "adequate protection" can be hard to place.

Either I'm stronger or it's fairly soft. Better protected than it looks too.

Didn't manage it once again, even with a bit of chalk to show the way. Lowered off after trying to climb to the ground from below the steep(er) bit. Maybe one day...
