Might get some new shoes for the crux, difficult stand up in a little hole! Not too bad to fall off though, twisted my ankle a little but that's as bad as it's ever going to get

Fell 5 times and got it on the 6th. 100% just stand up!

Took a winger with the gear in Wings. Felt close, but my leg wobbled as I was rocking up to the final move.

Onsight, slipped just as i reached the top jug. Cut shins open and required 10 stitches. Went back the week after and climbed it wearing shin pads.
