Old school climbing! In the sense of widely-spaced bolts, the first of which is a certainty of crippling injury in the event of a fall. I made that okay, and the second, but couldn't figure out the hard move to gain the third. Nonetheless, a great line that I'll come back to.

Had a crack at this after watching the others, forgot what they did and brute-forced the first half. It's a fun time - big overhang, and falls are practically risk-free! Pumpy and demanding, requires forearm endurance, good footwork and finger tape. Will return.

The best climb on site: pumpy edges, then sequency crimps, then balancy to make the crest. The complete package. Should have at least done it cleanly on top rope . I'd want to have this dialed perfectly before trying for the lead (1st to 2nd clip would be very nervy).
