Done with two pads - committing! Not 7a+ - the hardest move is still the first move of NTBTA. 6c/+ would be more appropriate.

Too good to be near without repeating. A brilliant end to my day's circuit.

On the first attempt i didn't commit, a bit apprehensive, but i shocked myself when i touched the top without really trying - as a dyno its not hard really. Next go i hit it but didnt hold on for some reason. But the final go i went for it like i really wanted it - it felt totally controlled, all points off double slap, and i totally loved doing it - so much fun! Surely it gets this grade for intimidation though rather than difficulty, as it would be 6c for me if it was by the ground... so 6c at that height as well with confidence inspiring spotters and a couple of mats.

couldnt work out the start.. didnt seem to be anywhere for the heelhook with enough friction.. or maybe i just had the wrong move

Very commiting, but not very hard, bottom move is defiently the crux!

Great fun, but was too tired after the other problems. Only had two attempts at the top before I couldn't even get the start again.

Forgot how to get off the ground but got the dyno straight away once I stopped puntering and got on to the rail!
