Easy but friable lower wall to a rest below the overlap. A superb sequence leads to better holds and a move left onto slabbier terrain. Recover then push on up to the big overlap and step left to a lower-off.

Crux took some working, eventually double undercling off surprisingly bad feet, with a decent stretch after, but the top was endless bad/careful feet which felt pumpy.. need to wire for RP.

Got all the moves not too bad, some of them were a bit tricky to figure out, and even once I got them to work on the second go I would completely change my mind about how to do them. Was starting to get dark before I could really rest in time for a proper redpoint attempt with the beta more figured out, will back early next year with some power endurance to finish it.
