This route reminds me of many reachy indoor routes that I have climbed in the past. Overall this route has certain hand placements that must be used to climb the route. Options are limited so feet placement is key.

Super fun climb! Short, reachy, technical, slightly overhanging, sustained climbing.

Led this in the pouring rain and the route remained dry (except for the top where I got drenched by runoff.) Really fun, pumpy, and reachy. Would recommend.
