starts the same as WLD, but goes left / stays on the bolt line at the third bolt. i think for it to really be .11b you have to climb the seam without stemming or reaching to either arete until you clip the anchors. if you stay left of the anchors for the last move it's supposed to be .11d, and if you climb with your right eye closed it's solid.11d++.

3 out of 5 stars fought off the pump

this thing is pumpy. the crux sequence starts at the third bolt and is like 12 moves long, to the chains. clipping bolt no. 4 is tricky.
i fell several times on the very last move. chains in front of my nose, pumping out, greasing off the holds, then falling, watching the chains move away from me faster and faster. glad to have this one under my belt so i can move on.
