Very doable, but the landing felt sketchy and then the wind picked up, so bailed

Glad I went to do this. Got it 5th and used my right hand to gain the crimp with left still on the undercut

Think I was being abit of a spanner. I basically matched the top in control but still blew it.

I am quite short so found the moves pretty interesting. The fall has death potential, but it is pretty unlikely to happen as long as you have a half-decent spotter. Great climb.

Used a different sequence to when I had tried it previously, it worked thanks to a good tip from Will.
