Fell off of this a bit years ago. Went second go today, having got all of a muddle on my first attempt. Nearly buttered off of the top rock over but managed to fall in the general direction of upwards. Done as a 'warm down' on a freezing day after about 4 hours of throwing myself at Underhand. Brilliant!
