An awkward start gains the pillar. Up this past a short wall to a steep final groove. Lower off to the left. © Rockfax

Pretty good climb most of the way but took a big fall by the last clip and went briefly upside-down! Should've grabbed the draw. Lucky not to hit the ledge but all was well in the end.

Went back to this climb as I had struggled with a part further up. Breezed that part this time, and annoyingly struggled with a more slab bit below. Next time I can get this lead clean for sure.
