Very green on the crux move, good moves and decent protection once I made the move past the green slime.

Think I did the 5b direct start to this route. Either way I had to jump to do the start, never 4c. Above that its pretty striaght forward.

Wasn't happy with the gear and was apprehensive about what holds were like above. Got myself all worked up and ended up traversing off. TRed it afterwards, nice technical climb.

Once you've mastered the overhang start you've sussed it, thereafter you just have to keep your centre of gravity close to the rock and move carefully.
