Yet another fine climb up this sunny wall, slightly harder but easier to protect than Wally 2. The faint groove system right of the Strong Arm start leads steadily to a good RP crack and then a stiff crux getting to and onto the good holds. Finish steeply but more easily.

Took a while to commit. Reversed to deck once to rest then went up and got super pumped trying to work out the crux anyway!

Easier than Wally 2, by far.

Crux was wet, but its not hard. Too short to get pumped, gear is fine if you have small wires. Good fun!

Bottled it. Slightly damp at the crux but that's no excuse. I just wasn't climbing with any confidence. Down climbed annd stripped the gear.

Self Belay. Struggled at the crux area. Will be back to try again but not sure if I will be able to complete clean.
