Got it in halves but couldn't get the end of the sequence for the first half to be the same as the start of the sequence of the second half. Spent hours trying to work out how to transition between the two. Eventually cracked it using two small crimps and a combination of short and tall beta that was very specific to me. Took 3 hours of working but got it first time I tried to do it in full.
