I got stuck on my first attempt because I climbed too high up the alluring jugs of Firefly and couldn't move back across from there. Second go. cool route.

Should have got this! Came off on crux bulge then fine to the top. Tried to get it clean a couple more times but got worse.

The bottom section was wet, but you get a chance to dry your fingers before launching out on to the thin crimps in the middle of the wall.

Went too high up firefly on onsight attempt, then got shutdown by the wetness on my Redpoint attempt. Too wet to climb straight into the meat of the 7a clean for me. Excellent climbing above on improbably thin crimps.

Always overlooked this, don't know why - it's very good. Traverse right with 2nd bolt about head height - I went too high initially. Freezing on the crimps today but still a pleasure, done 1st RP.
