I wish I had seen old5ten picture before going there. I messed up the beginning starting right around the corner from Chips -at first a short crack (5.6ish) to a ledge and then a short, very dirty, choosy right-facing offwidth protected with one C4 #3 at the bottom (5.8), getting to P1 belay from the right side (right below the bolt). With 70 meter rope going straight down decided to link first two pitches.
(BLUE LINE)

Possibly the first part of the offwidth could be skipped by going high on its right side, but that would require a reachy and balancy move from a choosy slab with minimal handholds way above any protection.
(BLUE DOTS)



messed up variation ;)
