So last time I led this was second Jan and I don't remember it being challenging, but found it tough today for some reason. Gear all there but head in wrong place. Oh and the guide is right large hexes are useful, shame I didn't have any, perhaps a runner in the last twenty feet would have made it feel less serious?

My money is on a VS (I'm not hugely experienced) it does seem to compare more with VS's I have done. There were three times I had to 'step out' across on small feet with not juggy hands and leaving the protection behind. felt a bit exposed. I did bloody love it though.
