The start seems much harder
The start seems much harder than any of the 20s nearby, I heard rumours of a broken hold near the crux (by the 3rd bolt if I can remember right) which might explain it, or my friend and I are just useless at finding efficient beta over the mantle, very possible.
Note: the rock deteriorates
Note: the rock deteriorates rapidly after the start, culminating in a crawl up dirt with rocks embedded and missing, to the anchor.
Agreed on the grade - did
Agreed on the grade - did this yesterday and it's probably better at grade 20.
