Ditto al... Soft V8 with heel and lank.. Tried the moves without the heel start and can see how it would feel hard v8..

Great problem. I thought soft V8 or hard V7. can see the grade depending a little on how many mats and if you can use the heel straight away. Pull on, miss intermediate, crimp, flake. Lovely!

About half an hour, basic but hard, definitely no easier than V8

Wouldn't have sent it if Al hadn't given me his nice shoes. V8 with heel hook

With heel on felt reasonable, but sharp little crimps on sore skin. Ended up spanning to the flake, left hand go, go, and go again!

Awesome moves!! Boney too! Wasn't expecting the send. Si reckons it'll get up-graded in the new guide. I thought v9 easy v10 possibly. Two thumbs fresh though!!
