Clipping the second clip with the right hand ? :P makes it feel like your gonna die. Is it wrong if I like that...

Worked this three times, one fall time two, one fall time three. I really though I would get it but not today. Harder than the 6c+ on the left. Next time I should get it, one run through to remember the moves (or get it) and then nail it.

JamesRich - Lead dog - 17/Jun/12 with Paul Rich

second session on this one. Finally got it clean. Personally think it considerably harder than Mr Whippy and not remotely tempted to lead due to the position of the 2nd clip

Would agree that this is the easiest of the three 6cs/+s but onl if you get the sequence right first go otherwise its a bit of a painful change over..
