Bolted for the 7a+ (uses same bolts) hence feels slightly run out. Thought worthwhile especially brilliant airy crux move well above bolt! :)

Scary bolting, the crux move is WAAY above a bolt, I backed off the lead after 2 falls failing to commit to the big move. Crux transfer from flake to pillar felt 6a+ to me.
