Some confusion exists as to Marlina vs Marlina Original.
To clarify.... All bolt numbers referred to do not include the additional bolt at the start. We can call it bolt 0!
Marlina Original climbs to the second bolt on the line then climbs directly to the old 4th bolt. It does not go out and left to the big undercut spike at the third bolt.
If you find yourself at this "rest" you are on Marlina and not the original.

' Direct' from the 3rd bolt flake, 1 less move, but 1 of them a bit harder than normal out left way.

Tried original original going direct from second bolt. Bit contrived given you avoid the big flake at the third bolt and it's only a foot to the left! Nice moves though made a bit of a change

marlinas purse. Really hard to keep going so tempting to just stop at Marlina lower off

Finally! First proper RP of the day. Still touch and go till the lower-off was actually clipped!

Two more half-hearted attempts.

Still failing at the more move, JUST ONE, PLEASE!

3 more attempts - getting ever closer. Got to top of crack and had the good hold, last bolt was clipped, and *still* couldn't find the juice to finish it! Maybe next time...

4 burns, no cigar. Finally got a seemingly workable sequence at the top, so should go next time.
