The mantle at the end is definitely the hardest part.

You just don't like mantles.

The problem felt pretty contrived if we are being honest.

Start same as "The Wave". Work your way up into the first rail (match) and then the second rail. Hand over hand to position yourself as far left on the top rail as you can. Big gaston into the front pocket on the stalactite, and wrap your left hand around the back. With high enough feet, you can just layback and reach for a great topout.
