Has a few sessions on this before, but today it went down much easier. Done some core during exams so that must have helped. Deffo V8 imo

Probably easier without fingers covered in tape and plasters. The undercut takes no prisoners.

This gets V7/V8 in the guide. Did it without too much trouble after some really good beta and dont think its worth V8. However, my mate who's done a fair few V7's and the odd V8 thinks its well hard (that might be down to the difference in height as he's shorter than me) Anyway, its a mint problem and definitely worth 3 stars as the guide suggests!

2nd go. V7 is fair I think. Beaver Cleaver is way harder?
