Got to the last bolt on my 4th attempt today.

 

Beta: Pre clipped 1st 2 bolts. The crux is getting the grey sloping holds in the corner after the 4th bolt. Clip the 4th bolt with left hand on a layaway and right foot bridged up to the right. Take a good undercut with the right hand and make a long stretch for the grey sloper. Toe hook with the right foot, move the right hand to the slopers, then move the left to a small undercut tufa. This helps stop the swing when you release the right foot. I then snatch up and left for a better grey hold, clip and dyno for big jugs. Try to recover here for the next moves, almost no hands rest high up and left. Then clip and right hand up for an intermediate hold, right hand again for a big hold. The last move past the pocket is right hand at RHS, left hand to undercut, right hand to LHS , foot up and stretch with left for a finger lock for left hand. Hang this and use the pinch just above it to snatch for a large layaway and clip the lower off.
