That was definitely harder than Latrec. Slipped off after getting fingers too well jammed.. otherwise fine but hard work in the heat.

Don't understand how this can be coded green in the guide book if there is a 4C move in it (which I think there is!). As for "ambling up" the groove, I for one did not do this.....
