Once the right beta was found (heel toe cam and high left foot) it went 3rd go, great problem. Pocket on face is in awful condition.

V7 if you start with one hand on the undercut and one above (what most people do). Starting with both hands on the undercut like it states in the origonal guide makes it harder, nothing right is in. V8.. Amazing problem!

Start matched on the hidden undercut right at the back of the cave, topout up the face and nothings allowed right of the crack. Great problem.
