I have pretty much all the moves sussed now but am a long way from having the power to link them all. Amazing route. So much fun!

Some better links than before, but still a couple of desperate moves. Sorted the beta for the rockover too now: Lhand spike, Rhand crimp, smear, Lfoot furthest L spike.

Amazing, can't quite believe it. Such awesome moves. Got it 2nd rpt after 3 days spread over two years figuring out moves on toprope. My first 8a..I'm taking the latest grade consensus in the new guide! New shoes made a big difference. Finding the right sequence is the key
