The moves up to the second bolt are rather hard for a f5+, it felt more like f6a to me. After that it's quite easy tho.

Desparately polished and now very sequency. I doubt many F5+ leaders o/s this.

Ripped a hold off at half height and sent me swinging right off! Im thinking not a 5+ anymore after that holds gone.
