Only did pitches 1 & 2 as we couldn't do the 5b/c get off the ground at the start of Pitch 3.
Moonstone Hippy - AltLd dnf - 06/Aug/11 with Johnny

Led P1. Niall led P2. We both tried and failed to commit to first moves on the 5b 3rd pitch so bailed. Dont see how this can be an HVS with the P3 crux moves at the bottom.

Led p2. Spanked by 3rd pitch. Could barely work out how to get more than a move or two off the ground and couldn't find the gear you'd expect from an HVS 5b.

Led P1&2. Nice to get it completed!
