Pumpy, but fairly easy and straightforward, especially if seconding. Lovely jamming! However, it seems very devoid of pro when leading. If in doubt, a crash mat just in case would be a good thing to consider.

Blew the onsight, so worked the moves to the top. Pulled the ropes, then lead clean on the preplaced gear. Very hard to onsight, as hand/fist jams only fitted a few places in the crack.

On harry's gear. 2 cams. First cam would be fine to place, 2nd cam would have made it trickier. Easy - nice jam, baggy jam, armbar, sloper, crimp, grovel. Fun!

Happy with performance with foyked tendons. Found start nails with only one good hand (rest). Then jammed fine but couldn't use the sidepull in the top of the crack due to hand (Fall). Got it (Jams up ascent!) from top of the holds avoiding the painful hold pulling start on the tendons! More straightfoward than i thought it would be. Bon - i'll do it again next year.

Up-and-downclimbed a few times to put in gear/scope out holds, then went for it, but after falling from the top-out arms were too sore to have another go! Very hard to onsight, I'd have thought.
