Clean on a top rope for first time - mainly because I got the knee bar to work for the first time. Need to be just a little bit stronger to lead it for clipping and to position the knee properly, which takes quite a lot of raw power.

Couldnt get the knee bar in let alone stay - too much leg! Some lateral thinking will be required for this!
