Starts with very little, then gets less as you go higher. Kinda sorta not really got through the moves with a lot of belay assist. Have to project it, find the tiny things you've got to trust to reach even tinier ones.

Tough crux, and confusing last few meters. According to the printed guide, it stops at the first set of double bolts (offset). The high bolts are for the next climb right, and it was awkward as anything to climb out of the gully and clip them. Might be a sweet link up to head far right after the crux, but I can't remember if that looked feasible.
