3 out of 5 stars Lower Finger Direct

Managed a tough finish to the day cleanly, but I like crimps and static balancy moves, so I was OK on this route. Led Finger Ramp to get to the anchors. I wouldn't want to lead this with the combination of the lack of pro and soft rock.

3 out of 5 stars Fun and Sequency

A nice route after climbing the traverse. I think I slipped once at the crux. Nice and fingery though.

Climb felt much harder. I think the holds are slowly washing away! Great climb though, worth doing if you are on the traverse route anyway.
