Felt very hard for 5c, as well as sustained, took a bad fall from near the top and damaged my wrist.
flyinfrenchy - Solo dnf - 03/Aug/12

fell a couple of times on early moves, bypassed the move to the right hand flake by moving up high probably reduces the difficulty at the start.

via some undercut trickery - satisfying but high enough that the mats look very small!
