Quality line. Tough to think of a better one at the grade despite the current lie down start.

Yes!! Easily got it first time today just before it started raining. Key factor was having some finger skin left.
shed_hed - Sent x - 19/Jan/14 with Dougie Swanson-Low

Gutted! Much closer this time - done in two halves but took too long to work out the moves and couldn't link it together before my finger skin disappeared :( next time!

Stand up start really is sit-down now, really greasy so felt harder than it probably is.

2nd go today. Previously convinced this was V7, today in good conditions it felt hard V6. Superb problem.

Sublime. Have wanted to do this for ages and didn't think I would today, but after working bits, I started going from the bottom. got every move almost perfect and did it!! super psyched, a real milestone achievment for me! Indy V4.

Hard start from matched in the slot (front lever and snatching left hand twice). I used to hate this problem as it shut me down for 3 years. Crushed it.

Barely space to do the low V6 start from the horizontal break now due to boulders moving in. Steady V5 with the sitter now - bit damp with spray though.
