5 out of 5 stars Tricky start, pumpy finish

The moves at the start still feel harder than many 5.12s I've done. But after the 4th bolt there is a good section to rest on, and jugs at the top are fun.

From previous try a few years ago, I remembered there beeing a runout at the top. But it didn't seem particularly runout now.
