retro as dogged on a top rope 2 years ago, didn't remember anything, a constant stream of beta from chris did the trick. If you're reading this for beta look inside the chunky flake, there is a thin jug near the lip that makes it all less taxing.

Got to the big flake then felt weak and didn't commit. Then repeated this several times then finally when i got past this and clipped the bolt i could clip the rope into it and fell due to being really pumped - possibly going drinking the night before didn't help.
