With a macho dyno rather than a poncy heel hook.

A great climb and makes a good highball, the last move is committing but reasonably safe-ish.... bring a spotter (also its reasonably easy to not use the tree's)

Not sure but possibly soloed this a couple of years ago. Nice move to reach the finishing ledge.

Actually quite enjoyed this one. Fell when I went for the crux as I didn't hit the ledge with my right hand. Got it on the second attempt.

Nice climb, all revolves around the right heel towards the top and trusting it to the gain the top jug with right hand.
