5 out of 5 stars yoga-like crux

Very tough start. After pulling the roof I did what felt like a swimming stroke to get my right hand up to a hold to make it on the ledge.

2 out of 5 stars Pretty Burly Roof

Looks like the wacky gaston was the way to go. You listening, Franck?

4 out of 5 stars a one-move climb

unfortunately, the grade comes from just the roof move... the rest is much easier terrain
