First move was green and my boots were wet, which helped me slip off it.

Really pleased with this. 3 months since serious hand surgery and managed a VS (soft one) on my first time out.

Did the bulk of the climb with lots of dogging having worn myself out on a few attempts at the start. Stepped right rather than doing the proper top of the climb.

Climbed with bad shoulder. Found it hard to get established and then never got back in control. Disco leg!

Rach 20 weeks pregnant. Thought we would do a nice steady severe to start the season... I must stop using the old guidebook! Pretty pumpy.
