Difficult climb for its grade, seems to be a hold missing at crucial point coming over ledge but unsure due to never climbing this route before. to be tried again when fresher.

Still not a F5! cf to other Portland 5's I'd say about 6a. Maybe if you were taller you could reach the crimp out right. Worked all the moves on shunt, but never tied them together in clean ascent

Shunt - Hard crux - I think some of the crimps must have pulled off over time. The Johnl 2007 photo gives some weight to this wimp-out! (whatever his left hand was on, isn't there anymore!)
