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.

julesmckim 7 Sep, 2018 Lead RP Brilliant climbing on the sustained upper wall. Lower section easy up to the bulge. Took a few goes to work out which foot holds to use, a few goes to learn to trust them. Got it first redpoint. Hard move to get the small crimp with the right hand. Sequency above to some semi-rests then more tricky climbing all the way to the rings.
