P4 rope run, first bolt clipped with short QD. Two extended pieces of gear, short QD on the bolt before left traverse. Two pieces of gear after traverse extended.  The second to last pitch is stellar. I was blown out from leading the first five pitches of borderline linking into angels and gave this lead to my partner. That was a mistake.  Draws hung above showing the exit from Strip Clip  Getting out of the steep into the finish. Anchor is out left and a bit tricky to see from the ground, bring an extra draw if you plan to clean on the lower.  Rope up on bust the move
