Really pleased with this. 3 months since serious hand surgery and managed a VS (soft one) on my first time out.

Did the bulk of the climb with lots of dogging having worn myself out on a few attempts at the start. Stepped right rather than doing the proper top of the climb.

Climbed with bad shoulder. Found it hard to get established and then never got back in control. Disco leg!
