Very satisfying to hit the top on this. And really happy to do it in a session. Got the top by pulling on the pebble halfway between the top and the crimps.

Felt nails hard (probably about the right grade then)! Skin was perhaps a little thin and I wasnt trusting the hands not to pop. One for the next trip perhaps.

Tried briefly a couple of years ago, didn't get past the first move. Took about five goes today. Felt about 7b using a heel.
