First ever (what I thought was an E2) on-sight. Moves up the face to the pocket were pretty straightforward but wouldn't trust those flakes to hold my baby brother, bomber gear in pocket and the last moves up the arete were nice although started to get pretty pumped.

Flakes are a bit wobbly. Made it past the crux 4th try and pumped off the break. Landed on the boulder... Will be back!
