4 out of 5 stars ascent note

1st attempt of the day, 3rd total (2 the day previous). Onsight attempt got between bolts 3 & 4. 2nd attempt didn't make bolt 4 due to choice of foothold. Redpoint attempt moved foot to big hold (instead of the little edge next to it) and the move was orders easier.

A couple of really cool sequences on this route (getting to the 3rd bolt and getting to the 4th bolt)
