finally got this bugger of a move. Backed off it many times in the past as a boulder problem, eventually decided today that since there was gear to protect the move I'd lead it instead. Got it first go with the rope on, but it still felt really hard. Probably deserves V4 rather than HVS!

Got it 4th attempt i think, good problem. Stiff pull but doesnt seem so bad once you've worked it out.

Cool start, but requires long legs and the ability to squash your shoulders next to your hips!
