Freezing hands again. Found a bag of dog poo on the way up that someone had thrown down the crack at the top. One move wonder climb and very dirty.

Martin assured me this was a soft touch HVS to warm up on at the start of the day. I thought it was a bit of a sandbag especially if, like me, you're not a good hand jammer.
