A short and sharp number. Climb up to the arch move right (a thread is usually in place) and finish up the tricky but thankfully short-lived wall.

pretty awkward moves under the roof and the hold by the tat isnt very big. top end of the grade, but right grade. good climb

Mild overall - very short-lived. The hardest move by far is clipping the thread, the climbing moves are pretty easy!

Think the thread is the same one Austin used....
