Felt like I did it all wrong. Tenuous.

samwillo 10/Apr Solo

Happy with this, felt good to do something requiring the head again. Although felt very steady on the solo, 2 goes on TR before

Nice warm up for the head

Ram MkiV 28/Feb Solo β

a bit juddery, bit too eager/not enough warm up. Quality sequence, good height, loads of pads

nathanlee 28/Feb Solo G/U

Bottled it years ago. Still had to fight today, including slipping off near the top! Class

Ground up. Amazing! For shorties the Rockover to the second chicken head is the crux for sure. Up high is tricky but steady (thanks for the beta Nath!) above a sea of pads. Very happy to do this as its been on the hitlist for a while!

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!

holy crap. utterly terrifying! the rock-over is the crux, but the moves are still hard enough that far off the floor. so, so good. well pleased.

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.
