Not great. The bolt line is clearly meant to be climbed direct, and the independent moves are ok, but the line pulls you left leaving a confusing eliminate.

Started a long way right, where it was really chossy and unpleasant. Broke a foothold and wasn't happy with where I was relative to the bolts, so traversed over to Slings Shot (where somebody was already climbing) and down-climbed on lead.

After the cock-up of my previous climb, Phil made me do Slings Shot "properly". I went up very directly this time, making it much harder for myself than I needed (turns out he made me climb Crocadilia instead). Nice climb, like the flowstone.
