Get in! Third or fourth session when I've tried this brilliant problem. Been working on core strength and flexibility recently and it paid off -it went in ten goes today, including remembering the sequence. A superb problem!

Softer shoe makes it easier to get your toe in the mid-way hold in the roof. Get a good crimp on the hold half way up the wall rather than open handed.

Took long enough! About 4 sessions worth of work to get the right sequence and cold conditions when I wasn't injured in some way before a quick send. RH to jug. LH to lip. Left toe on the block and right toe in the toe dish. RH lip. LH crimp. Match. Shift foot to jug. Go!
