Stung! Took the fall from the top, no pads. Happy to walk away (although with a bit of a limp). Going to scope out the finish before I try this one again

Had tried and backed off before. Had a better look at the top out from the side this time and it went fine.

Jumped from the big jug below the overlap after a few exciting forays upwards from it! Next time I will be braver... Lovely climbing up to that point.
