4 out of 5 stars Learn to use your feet

The first bolt could be a bit lower for sure, but all in all well protected. You can TR this with long runners with the 5.8 to the right of it.

4 out of 5 stars sling the horn...

... or not. First bolt is up high but easy to get to. Crux is well protected.
