Traversed right at the correct level this time, just needed to stretch a little bit more and I would have been on the hidden jug last time, felt the same grade. The Crux was still the same and committing but at least it was dry this time

traversed in at the wrong level (feet on hand holds) will be back to do the correct line as the the lower traverse didn't look much different but still did the crux
