Good technical climbing. Had to work the last move.

Haha, had to put a sling on the top bolt and use it as a footloop to aid the last move

Surprisingly good route. Very little polish. Not too pumpy but seemed hard technically.

Found this desperate in three places. Seems much harder than 6b+

Last route of the day, sun was down, very cold before starting. Fell off last move before completing. Hot aches on lower-off
