Excellent climbing (dyno or long reach) gains a jug a long way off the ground. Jump off.

Dom went around to try it, wasn't going to get on it but did. Pleased it went easily first try. (left hand to pinch, then left hand again to jug before match - didn't use intermediate)

Moved onto bouldering after seconding Raff on overhanging groove as the snow started to fall. Sooo cold. Pissed about contemplating a dyno off the rib before going right hand high on the flake, high feet and right hand to jug. Static shorty way. A gimme at v5.

Last time I battled with WOH start I left the cliff hopping and had broken a bone in my foot when landing funny after going for the jug. - Returned to it today and cruised in on the first attempt, ecstatic when matched on the jug. - Such good moves.

If this is the right hand start to Wall of Horrors... (V3 6a).

Grade seems to vary a lot for this, have seen it at 6a, 6b, V3 and V4. Good though whatever the grade, long reach clearly helps!
