A couple of marginal, teetery moments. It's a bit reachy for a short guy... or maybe I just climbed it badly.

Bit of a thin start and didn't get any gear in till the first break, which felt a bit bold. After that it was all fine and get gear in was pretty relaxed.

Rested on gear when I felt my feet sliding and didn't want to shock load a microcam. In the twilight. Sustained at the grade.
