A bit of a squeezed feeling. Did this one go in before the Dirge or the Revelation? A .75 helps with the moves above the 3rd bolt which can be a bit weird if you mess up the (inobvious) sequence.

This is Fergy, the original canyon for route squeezing.

This was the original line on this section of wall. The Dirge and The Revelation went in afterward. All are good variations to a central theme though.
