Comments: Nice flow on friendly holds through the start. Crux at 4th bolt is punchy and bouldery.

Comments: Bouldery right off the deck. Crux comes in around bolts 2-4. Pumpy and technical but holds get big above crux.

Comments: The traverse into the crack was definitely exciting. A #5 was necessary for the wide section, and you can definitely lieback and/or climb plenty of face features without needing any offwitdth technique.

p3 (or p2 if you link 1 & 2, which you can easily do with a 70) sucked up three small nuts, and we used doubles from #00-#1, 1 #1 and a small offset nut was useful too. Roof move felt burly to me!

Comments: You definitely need an 80 meter rope or two single to rap. A 70 does not make it... Tricky crux. I stayed in the crack and fell before realizing that I needed to reach out left!
