Got pumped at the lip, fell once, then a tough leg-straightening move in the heel-toe lock.

Ground Up 2nd go. Faffed loads weighted the rope needlessly!

Did the right hand start first go after not wanting to commit to the left direct one in the heat so jumped off but my foot got stuck on the ledge and I landed a bit awkwardly but good spotting by rob kept me off the ground. Cool no hands position on the lip (didn't really feel like a rest as my foot was slipping out of the leg bar so I only let go briefly). desperately hard exit but pleased to do it with style. currently HVS 5a on ukc is a joke!

Strewth! Went okay once I stopped trying to pull and got my entire leg in the horizontal break above the heel hook ledge.

Definitely not 5a, at least 5b, maybe even a bit harder.
