Utterly baffled by this one. Great climbing about 3/4 the way up and then what seemed like a mantleshelf onto a tiny ledge with no hands! No idea how to do it, maybe I just need to be taller...

Good tech sequences. Didn't feel hard for the grade. Not really much harder for the short, just requires a more committed approach!

Surprised by comments below. Thought 7a. May be easier for the tall though.

7b. Crux is so thin and go-ey, it's never felt the same twice.
