Fell off and managed to grate myself on the way down. Stingy.

Second go after fingers just popped off pebble first time. Awesome route, with the wierd knee press beta.

Got hands on the top after a lot of working out but didn't want to go any further. Pebble Pulling.

2nd attempt, it's the most amazing climb I've ever done. I would recommend it to anyone.

Never been able to work this out before but with quality beta it felt fine.
