I grabbed what appeared to be a drilled pocket on this route pulling up out of the bulge. Just curious if it was natural or man made pocket? It was a right hand, and it fit four fingers perfectly. I liked each of the three cruxes on this climb, and it was a little harder than it looked from below, but if that is a drilled pocket, it kind of takes away from the route.
