Fell off at the second bolt on the flash attempt, just couldn't find a foothold when I needed one.

Cold fingers didn't help but thought this was hard at the grade with a tough crux up to and past the second bolt. Had beta from watching Andrew beforehand to the flat hold above the second bolt but there are a few more tricky moved after that (crucial side pull out right). Stopped at the break for ages trying to defrost the fingers before the delicate moves into the scoop above. A good route. Start up the slight corner of the 7a to the left and traverse in at the first bolt, the direct start is possible but several grades harder as Andrew demonstrated!
