60m rope stretcher. Tie a stopper knot.
7 bolts I believe. Passing the last bolt is frictiony fun (don't cheat right).

Third on the rope stretcher... Last few bolts are difficult (impossible) to see from below, but they're there.

Crux moves up to the first bolt. Then flakes etc, Then smeary to the anchors. Fun route.
