Had an onsight go at this after a long session at the remnant, fell off the last moves over the bulge, arms felt empty. Confirmed when I failed second time then struggled even dogging up it...

There are actually OK holds on this, though my sequence (which still felt hard) goes a bit close to the groove on the right with the feet.
