Omg, this was nails, had to aid climb it to get up. Clearly I cant do any overhanging trad routes.

pretty stiff first up, especially when the sun hasnt come onto this. the ultimate boulder problem route and hard for 5c, not an easy onsight. good gear below you so no stress though. nice move when you finally commit.

Don't know what I thought about the grade of this as it is essentially a boulder problem in the sky. Great climbing though....brutal.
