Got it first go today putting the draws in. Felt more like a flash. Did the big move without really thinking.

Got to the crux move clean then pumped out trying to figure out the move. Big old move required in the end that took several attempts before I got it. Skin was looking very thin afterwards so didn't have another go.

Big and brilliant moves. Fell off the last one unfortunately.

sadly i couldnt Capture the Coelacanth due to damp crimps. really quite liked this but the run-out is just stupid. also why not swap the starts of this and Pure Gold to give more logical lines? lowered from last bolt. cruxy.
