Maybe not the most aesthetic problem to look at, but it's got a great set of moves.

Came so close! Can't manage the shorty's heel-to-hand thing, but managed to stick the move without it twice in many hours of trying. Sadly I hand't sorted out the end move when i got to it, and once I worked it out couldn't repeat the crux. Next time I'm near, it will go. Enough of this 'much harder if you're tall' nonsense. There is another way to do the move, and its not all that hard. This has got to be soft, he says, having never done it..

Did all the moves, could do with being a few feet further from the ground, then it would be classic. Its just a shame about ur arse draggin on the floor as ur moving, kinda makes it feel shit, athouh the holds are lovely. Wont be rushing back unless it grows.

Happily heel-hooking and slapping away until my hand popped off and took much of my right finger with it - owwwwwww! I was malled - beware the crimp at the back! Will be climbing with a bandaged finger for a while yet...
