Wow. Took many goes to get established over the lip but with some tall persons beta found a sequence the preceded to get stuck on the mental crux of trusting the first smear on the slab. Got a little sandbagged by all the ladybirds crawling all over the slab. So incredible to watch freddie climb it twice can't wait to try it again. Just need to trust the smear

Stiff shoes halted my advances at first but I still attempted to dyno to the arête from a position of full body contact with the slab, it was my flash attempt after all. Borrowed a mates Futuras and did it a couple tries after that

took a few goes to fathom. Not happy with footwork or rock shoes at the mo'. Then flashed the 7b (can't be really) problem which continues going right to the arete and then got shut down on the top of hard arete with bad skin. Not such a bad day all in all as pretty hungover.
