Tricky start, took a bit of working out but it's pretty much over when your feet are about 2m up. Nice moves though!

Found this really tricky has a pebble been lost? Or i've lost some gritstone knack! v.good conditions, but the step up a move or so after the start felt really hard.

3rd go, Awesome pebble crushing. once off the floor you just have to keep it together, couldnt see anything apart from chalk as it was dark. No idea how i stayed on at one point, true grit.
