Finally sent it! Really did not expect it to happen in the summer heat but somehow I just floated up it on my first try of the session.

A mythical problem I've dreamt about since the early climbing days. Had a few tries the day before not really getting to the second hold. Came back the day after with better conditions and was just getting spat off just before going for the jug then our of nowhere had one of them tries where everything just feels perfect and just seemed to float up it. Brilliant!
