2nd go.

Finally got it. Last move spat me off over so many sessions. Think conditions are important as they were excellent and the last move felt easy. Slabs obv not my forte as this took me a long time, superb micro route/problem well deserving 3 stars which would be lovely to on sight (if only).

Few attempts trying it and almost doing it static, but then first go doing it the pop method (this move wouldn't feel as hard if it was a lot closer to the deck) Great Problem.

After 20+ goes on my own a few weeks Steve flashed it and used the small crimp up and left I hadn't seen, I went up and it feels easy that way. Right foot is the key

Fantastic. First proper V5 ont Grit. Not really worthy of a route grade, as its defo a boulder problem with mats. Get in!
