Had done this a year ago but was unsure whether I had strayed off line. I reckon I definitely had gone too far right and did it properly this time. Felt easy after one practice. Tricky but is between 2nd and 3rd bolt but felt easy when you know what you're doing.

Gutted not to get this. My first attempt at red pointing and I've learnt a lot such as really get your sequence dialled if climbing something as sequence dependent as this climb is. Lovely varied climbing. I need to come back and climb this cleanly (after refreshing my sequence of course) :-)
