1st go today and felt super easy, interesting to see progression from not being able to do the first move to smashing it.

Surprised myself and got past the initial crux and ended up slapping for the top and peeling off. Well caught by my spotters. Next time...

took a while of pulling up and locking on starting holds with a dummy lunge to get the confidence to commit to possibly ripping all skin, once u get this hold its pretty much in the bag

Tried this 8 years ago and couldn't pull off the ground! Much easier today, found the penultimate move the hardest/most comitting especially with warm greasy rock. An excellent problem.
northerngreg - Sent x - 13/Jun/09 with Jo Lee

tried before without mat, could'nt start and wouldn't have finished. this time, got it third go, after fluffing the top on my second. good beta to bump right hand from starting hold to sharp crystal above as feet go on.
