A very strange route. Basically a jug ladder leads to a crux with bad feet and an out of reach clip (even with extended qd’s). Am I doing it wrong? It seems as if the bolt at the start of the crux is deliberately placed to prevent use of the right hand flake side pull but without it the move seems way too hard for 7a+. I still enjoyed it but really don’t quite know what to make of it. And I’m still not sure whether that right side pull is ‘allowed’

Would have probably made it if I had another go, wanted to save a bit of energy for Arianne V.

Not a great climb. Confusing hard crux - maybe strayed too far right but v eliminate otherwise.
