Vitruvian Man** f7C / V9
Start right of The Groove on a pinchy L hand hold and slopey R hand side-pull. Pull on and make a hard slap up right to a large hold (sticking this move is the crux). Now finish direct via some outlandish slaps. Maybe 7c+.

Pleased to tick it. 2 sessions, although never stuck the first move on the first. 2 flappers on the same palm from falling off the end.

After about five goes. Kept the feet on for the top move, much easier that way.

Second session, took a nasty fall off the top onto some rocks, sprained my wrist, got back on and did it.

In a session. Great problem - the first move is knacky but the top is the crux especially as it's pretty impossible to work without climbing the start each time - hard work cos of this. Expect it won't feel too bad to repeat having worked out the beta.

Cheers for the beta Andy F. Psyched to go back on a cooler day to figure out the lower starts.
