Love this route, easy yet engaging down low into a series of memorable moves up top. Cant recommend it enough, It felt run out to the top of the flake (didn't use carrot, as the next bolt was a few easy moves away) but only grade 18 or so climbing if your sticking to the face.

Just half a day - but very happy to miss that sketchy end traverse (and the pain of cleaning it). Worked the crux, trying and dismissing each of the tempting but red herring half footholds. The answer for me was the left hand intermediate, foot up, then throwing the left had again to the jug. Then back to the ground to get it all clean.
