alan.phobos 4 May TR dnf Unable even to cleanly top-rope this beast. First section felt really technical and fingery but achievable. Then there is a horrible reach-based slab move (slightly lower left foot option for future reference). Then comes a slightly overhung thin crux on poor slopey holds in a recess. After all that you get a nasty narrow mantle-style finish which I wasn't able to figure our the beta for at all. Can't wait to come back.
