Adam Booth 1 Nov, 2016 Sent dnf Progress. Did all the moves, after moving the heel to a different position. Problem is it's now on the starting handhold which I wasn't able to use when trying to re-do the first couple of moves. Hmmm...

BenNorman 7 Sep, 2014 Sent x Could not be more chuffed. Nowhere near on Saturday trying various heel based beta. Had a quick play on a few other things at the end of the session and thought maybe it was possible. Worked out how to swap heel to toe after the 3rd move on Sunday and it went 4th go from the bottom. Amazing problem, one of the best anywhere!
