hickened out on lead and re climbed on top rope. Worked out a confident route at difficult spot so hopefully i can get this in one next time. Beginning moves on small pockets are the hardest though, good edging or smearing required.

Awkward at the beginning. Stay in the route, going left will only make it harder. At 3/4 route it is awkward again. Not an easy route for short people. More like 6a+.
