Two short sections to this fun climb. The first bit is easy hands with good pro. Then an awkward step across to get underneath the wide bit, also well protected. The crux for me was getting established up into the bombay squeeze. Not much pro here but very secure once you're in it. Lassoed a flake for an anchor. Downclimb might have been 4th class.
