Very techy and balancy with a thin crux near the top. Enjoyable.

alexspurling 09/Apr/16 Lead dog

Continuous hard but fun balancy moves. Gutted to have gone the wrong way after the rest and missed the OS. Last route of the trip.

2nd redpoint today. First try was in 2010 where I failed. The crux is very, very thin and technical. However once I knew all the moves it felt pretty easy! Just use your noggin'

A very technical thin middle section on small holds. Too pumped to finish
