Got this by the skin of my teeth... big moves with hard to read footwork so felt more like 7a when climbing onsight, but when I went back up to clean it later knowing the moves seemed correctly graded but definitely high in the grade.

Quite a strenous start but a good rest before the final big moves. Much easier with beta. A looseish flake as you pull over the top.
