gear can definitely feel fiddly and the route can feel a bit run out in places. Really nice line none the less with some pleasantly technical moves.

Couldn't place convincing gear at start and footholds a bit polished. Probably suffering from post-Colorado apathy

Placing gear on the ascent (even though protected by TR). Moves never too tricky, but a bit run out if not careful with gear.

Surprisingly straightforward, but a bit thin on gear in the middle, which slowed my progress a bit. A wire and a couple of rubbish nuts inspired confidence though.
