Big climb up overhanging Boulder that's unprotected. Start awkward bridging up twin cracks. Tired up toward top and got pumpy toward end. Good climb

Right crack and wall sopping wet so just climbed the left crack - nice moves but quite technical for the grade!

Easy and very good protection, but is harder than VDiff in my opinion probably more like HVD/S?

Matts lead! Have lead before, felt probably easier, he took the block direct (dyno then mantle). Then very simple bridging with perfect protection. Had plenty of time to suss out the moves before commiting to them. Protection next to perfect throughout. Still enjoyable even if it is a little short!
