Felt a little too easy. But did get the right sequence straight off and had engaged full Zen Space zone.

once on the wall the moves are fine and steady, although the step off the block is hard with really short legs!

slipped off footholds right at top - big ground fall face and knees first, before bouldering mats were invented. Bloody knees and chipped teeth, hilarious. I still think of this when run my tongue over aforementioned chipped teeth.
