decked on first try and touched bolt for balance - received a lot of stick.

Struggled on the start which is very crimpy and quite committed. Andy also DNF'd but got higher up under the over hang. Rich finished but also struggled get past the overhang. I was please with my efforts on the lower portion but also annoyed as I should have got past the problem.
