Found quite pumpy going for the last move.

Nemesis slain. This has always felt desperate before but felt steady today with properly dry holds and new beta. Low 7b with heel beta to get the crimp. Dyno is obviously height dependent but felt considerably harder to me.

3 sessions over 4 years felt ok today. 7b but not hard

Bad skin, not ideal conditions and at the end of the session, but even still this felt like the living end. Dyno method. Felt hard 7b to me...

Looked easy but was a massive battle to get up it.

Such a good problem. . Fell of the last move once like a dipstick so had to do again. Went out right to the crimp using shorties fancy footwork!

3rd visit to this sucker, though first time in decent knick. Changed beta today to get out to right crimp more reliably - sacked off heels.

A sweet problem, felt like V8 to me. i couldn't do the dyno version so had to use the crimp out right which was powerful.

I did this with a big campus move into the back of the groove. Not sure if it's 7a+ for shorties - seemed hard.
