Several cruxes of the grade interrupted by some good rests. Start up a steep arete to a stance that leads right around the arete to access the steep face above. Save something for the top! Tie a knot in the end of your rope so you drop your climber when lowering with a 60m.
Between Aerostar and Yaw.

A 70m rope is recommended (or trail a 2nd rope). (A 60m rope is probably too short if you lower through the draws; it might reach if you rappel or unclip the draws as you lower?)
Nice new climb. Still a little bit of flaky stuff coming off like any new climb here, but super fun cruxes each requiring different tricks to get through.
