Great to come back and finally tick this. Still had to have one practice go working the crux!

Wet! had such a fight on the onsight and got to with a few feet of the chains but slid off with wet hands and feet. Next go

Not properly warmed up and trying really hard not to drop the os hurt a finger on the crux. Cold hands and fifth day on def not helped. Dave had to strip draws.

Probably the hardest I've ever pulled while tied into a rope to get through the bulge. pretty unbalanced as its in the bag after that, you just don't know it! p.s. shaun did not flash this.

Not as straightforward as it looks. I found the undercut move hard.

Had to pull past the crux. Found a really nice sequence but stopped by a final stopper move.
