I actually thought this was ok. Very well protected with sideways nuts, and the move round the bulge didn't cause as much trouble as I expected.

A desperate struggle - upward progress in the ear only made possible by the adhesive properties of my Arran sweater! Led it many years later when I was leading E-grades and still found it desperate.
