A very good problem just ignore the polish. Tryed this with Andy about 8 years ago. Got it today took me a while to work it out. Did it from standing the hard climbing is at the top. Couldn't repeat it again from sitting to tiered. In my book it gets 2 grades sitting and standing I didn't think the sit start adds that much extra. Will go back and do it from sitting.
