I don't have a topo for this crag, so this is a guess on the name based on other descriptions in Sendage. This was an RP project for me near the centre of the wall, a bouldery start to a juggy finger jam rest, then move right up a ramp with sequential moves. Clipping the 3rd bolt was cruxy for me, didnt want to fall on the rope. Slopers and multi-directional crimps up the ramp, cruxy clipping. Several fixed draws. I skipped 2 clips on the RP go. Going out left after the ramp and under the roof is a no hands rest before the last section 1-2 clips to the top. Super fun route.
I'd call it 12b or c if you go left at crux.
Felt like 12d/13a in the 35 degree heat;)
Repeat with Elise and Eva. Elise led the entire thing including the approach and descent!
Fun bouldery start.
