Underrated route, slight compression crux at halfway.

First section flows really well, great climbing. Slappy up the crusty bulge above.

The hanging wave of flowstone at the top was very familiar. Turns out I tried 2 years ago - who knew!

Quite a tough move at the end of the pumpy section..... hard to tell as quite unfit but felt hard for F6c+.

Great moves low down, had to dyno the big move to the break. Worryingly hollow top section.
