3 out of 5 stars holdless crux

wouldn't've caught me on the sharp end with the original bolt spacing, but very keen to get back and do it on lead now that we have retro-bolted it.

3 out of 5 stars Fun route

The FA was rather character building...we added another bolt afterwards. Most of the climbing on this route is around 16
