Excellent. Had about 5 attempts before working out the correct sequence. I reached up with right hand but Mike used his left with a clever undercling/side finger lock with the right hand which gave him a couple of extra inches of reach.

As good as it looks & a nice lead by Kev. We did the right hand start... Only felt like 5a to me but is possibly harder if you're short and haven't got the reach...
