I assumed the small flake to the right was in, otherwise would be harder than v3 i think

Rigged toprope from halfway break after failing to start a few times. Seemed very hard still but was trying to be very ethical about what's in.

with a mat at the bottom - so more of a v3 boulder problem followed by a severe solo. Still really chuffed to get those moves figured out.
