Hmmmm, blew the onsite with only draws (clips run out at half height), need small wires for top section - really should read guidebook properly in future. The direct moves above the wire placed in flake are awesomely, technical and committing - soft touch 7b for me!

blew the onsite, did it second go after working out the move. nearly died though... the snaplink protecting me from the ground was cross loaded on the wire gate... good job I didnt fall off

Really good & then we got rained off. Take a small wire or two for the top.

1st go: just couldnt get good sequence for crux and lowered. 2nd go: went to top with rests via Firefly finish. tough for 7a+ i.e. its 7b! crux moves felt sketchy, as if youd slice your face if you came off (ok, im exaggerating) - not my cuppa anyway. and the top moves, do you really finish direct and not up Firefly? if yes its a technical horror show. must come back to do this justice as its really good if hard. not a good day at the office...

The resin bolt below the crux moves a little. It can be backed up with a medium wire in just down and right.
