Short but entertaining.
Looking forward to a rematch where I can hopefully build some momentum for the clean send. Was a bit wary due to the rep for not great rock so looked to this as an exploratory mission rather than a true onsight effort. As a result I kept taking too long double checking my placements due to the funky irregular cracks. Maybe I was just pumped out from the steep start but there didn't seem to be an abundance of fantastic rest stances, although a stem to the wall out left worked pretty well at one point. I'm not really sure what I'd call the crux on this one.
Kinda reminded me of a harder version of Popeye Effect - short and pumpy with some awkward holds and not as many rest stance as you might want.
Not sure if it's necessary but I build a hanging belay at the top of the difficult section because of a really good #1/.75 C4 sized crack and I needed to have a straight shot to my followers for an extra secure minimum friction belay so they could work the start (which is fairly full on almost immediately).
