Faffed around getting decent gear in above the jug and rested. Fortunately the bees in their nest in the crack just below the jug seemed very docile as they bumbled past me. Seemed mid grade E1, OK moves, just a bit pumpy placing the gear to protect the top half.

1 rest at the top, wrong handed, shame as this is far better than farewell to arms, and i think a bit harder.
