12m. Probably the best route on the crag. Make a rising traverse across the steep face to a flake, gain its top and enter a bay above, exiting left or right.

Much love for the committing crux move.

I added some spice to this climb by knocking out my best piece of gear just as I committed to the crux.

Wish the pro protected the crux, best VS at crag

Tried to lead the traverse section via a higher line. Scary and backed off. Fiona went up a lower line which made more sense.

Fun, technical moves rightwards and a nice arete finish if you move back left at the top. Easier than the direct though....
