tried bouldering this a few times in the past but always ended up slicing fingers on sharp edges while skittering around with feet. This time I figured out a finger-lock and sorted my feet out. Still a bit painful though.

Not sure whether I did cracks or pockets, A mix I think. Still deserved 5b grade whatever it was

Thin cracks, quite steep, balancey. Short but mean. High in the grade. Fell off twice before working out sequence of moves.
