Not a 17. Felt way harder. First bolt is ridiculously high.

17 Asylum for the Insane

Varied and thoroughly enjoyable. Delicate and crimpy slab moves to start, with the lower crux being just reaching the first bolt. Eases off after the third bolt (but is run out), until the big horizontal crack, where a great hand crack continues to the top, with maybe 6m of grade 16 crack climbing. From the ground it looks like it's all over after the horizontal crack, but this isn't the case! Take finger to hand sized cams and nuts, with a BD #2 or #3 for the horizontal crack.

Got through the crux without issue, then bailed near the top due to very strong winds.
