Greased off after not finding the best hold near the start. On the repeat to retrieve the clips, found it easy.

Did it as a warm up, first route of 2012, but it was quite hard on the forearms, felt quite a pump after, it really is quite polished.

2nd go. Slipped off first time, much easier when you know where the holds aren't.
