Climbed it and could remember the gear placements, also fondly remembered the giant run-out until mid-point. Crux is extremely well protected by three good placements.

Don't think i climbed the true line as stepped right at the crux. Also, the direct start looked a bit spicy, not sure whether the start is the same for this and the Bryn. So basically, i climbed the Bryn at VS and not this.
