βeta: this is a great route. one section of the climb was much harder than the rest of the route. around 5th bolt. hard long move off gaston edge with right hand up to a big hold. one to go back for. don't know what the difficulty was with the finish. seemed pretty straight forward.

Had 2 red point attempts. Fell both times on the crux. Had lazy feet & bad foot beta. The move to the letter box after the next bolt is also a bit of a pull. Feet up high and back edge. Had to leave crag early. not able to give it a 3rd attempt.
