Fun route, cool movement, nice angle. Couple crumbly feet but overall good stone! You can climb it in one monster pitch from the 5.10 below, 70 meter rope mandatory to lower!

Deserves more attention. Fun movement.
Definitely cleaning up. There are still some fragile holds though, so don't break them!
No serious rope drag issues if you use shoulder length runners on bolts 1 and 2 and the anchor of Little Kitten and on bolt 1 of Slender Babe.
After topping out Little Kitten, you are invisible to your belayer until you get to the third clip on Slender Babe. However, the chance of falling here is really low.
