Just one tricky bit over the bulge/rib, balancy on small feet. Went left but came back and straight up was the right way. Nice climb.

Went right at crux, delicate traverse back left to clip and continue, did the slightly left of bolt (correct?) sequence on toprope when coming down, similar grade?

Two contrasting sections, easy scrambling up to 3rd bolt, then very thin holds/cripms for a couple of moves then it's all over. Usde a hold quite wide left, felt a bit off route for full 6b tick.

I mistook this for the adjacent 5 route. Lead it to the crux move which I looked at. Stepped right onto the 6a and pulled around the crux and lowered off thinking that was hard for a 5. Upon realizing my mistake I got back up and lead it cleanly to snatch my first f6b! Mind you it's a short route with only 2 f6b moves in it really. Low in the grade but a great route I thought. Shame I can't claim the onsight.
