It was quite smooth and relatively easy until the last bit. That section felt more like a 6c or maybe just didn't suit my style.

First bolt is really high but its pretty easy up to it. Some find a hex helpful, I didn't use one mainly because I didn't have a hex at the time as I only did sport back then...
