Left my climbing shoes, just decided to go in my trainers anyway, a single tricky move(not reachy if you move your feet up!) with gear at waist height. Ana seconded cleanly, jody opted for the pendulum traverse.

Not quite the line I was going to take when I started the route. Quite a long reach for someone so short. Also rather run out, as I kicked the small nut out doing the final move.

Don't think I really qualify as 'tall', but I possibly lose half a tech grade for lack of style - reached up on highest limit of tip toes and hooked the hold and then kicked and scraped upwards.

I think I seconded this a few years ago with Misha, so only a "more or less" onsight.
Found the moves fine after sticking a few wires in.
Got attacked by the wasps nest a couple of metres left at the top, they left me alone when I shuffled down and right slightly from the belay point.
