I believe the FA can be credited to Ward and Chris Smith. Rumney progenitors.

Quite good- the crafty trad climber will find a sneaky hand jam somewhere near the crux that definitely takes the edge off the moves around it.

I think that, on the onsight attempt, this thing is probably .12a. Once beta is sorted, it feels .11d or so, especially if you can figure out the crafty (and cruiser) way of doing the crux moves.

What a mean route, I loved every second of it. Even when I was plummeting through the air.
