just one hard/pumpy move bit of a broken route really but fun!

Way too much faffing up and down at the crux but worked it out and got it in the end. I think it requires quite a specific sequence. Could do with a bit of a clean!

Essentially one stiff pull above a hands off rest, followed by a path to the top. Enjoyed it.

Fell from the crux, went up again and fell from the crux again. One to go back to!

Led clean on pre-placed gear after lowering off and having a rest. Its quite a hard pull to reach easier ground, be a nice safe fall if ya muffed it tho. Definately wud be easier with a long reach.
