βeta: Couldn't really suss out 6b+ finish so choose the direct option which gives fingery technical climbing and a nice end to the route.

βeta: Surprisingly good route, better than it looks and interesting all the way right up to an exposed finish for which you do need to zig left and zag right quite a bit. Runout middle is easy so don't worry. The climbing in more committing than actually hard.

βeta: Once around the bulge, clip the bolt out left then make the step up. Then unclip it and clip the bolt above you to avoid hideous rope-drag.
