Second HS of the year, had to reverse couple of moves until happy with my normal abundance of gear. Once had about ten pieces every few cms able to proceed on with not too much difficulty.

Was great till I left the Nozag part, found the traverse right unprotected and the finish not worth it. Wish I had had the balls to take on Nozag!!
