Climbed to warm up for routes to the right. Not a good warm up.

One silly rest before the big reach at the lower off.

I can't remember if I've been on this in the pass- mostly likely had a good few years ago. Nicest route I've done on the buttress...

flash today after trying when tired last week. Would say could easily get 6c given the polished footholds in places and the very committing long reach final move. not what you'd call an easy warm-up for this wall!
