Couldn't release the heel/toe cam without coming off.

James Oswald 06/Nov/17 Sent x

Really pleased to do this today after 4 sessions. Amazing problem, strength isn't very useful you need your hips in exactly the right position. Managed it with a combination of a left heel round the arete, bringing my hips into the rock, and squeezing my knees on the arete, allowing me to bring my right foot up onto the crimps. One of the best 7As I've done.

Not too bad when you drag the heel-toe into just a toe-hook Then you to move the right foot out slowly and onto the obvious low edge right of the arete and avoid swinging off!

A tricky little climb. I got close first go but it still ended up taking a few goes. My body could just about get the two holds and manage to toe-hook to stop the swing.. The last move kept throwing me off, but then i used the left sidepull and it went :) very Modernistic :)
