Kinda sounds like another route here, Gettin Too old for this S--t. I did that with a client a year ago, but wasn't sure if it had been done before. Did Some Punter go slightly left and through the water streak at the top? if so, when, so one of us can modify our route description accordingly. i like your route name, though.

Gear doesn't seem to match, and the grey water streak looked pretty unappealing compared to thin-ness in perfect varnish, which stayed left of the greyness. Funny name on both though. This one pulls crux moves off tiny half-out wires, seems like if they followed the same topout, the alarming part would have been mentioned. Ya should give me a yell to get out sometime-we got FAs to do, sir. Stay up!
