Class! Nearly did it first go but messed it up at the top. Did it third go but the last move is tough if you are short!

tried last year and got spanked. 3rd go today after I taped my index finger for the jam at the start.

Brilliant problem. Didn't use any heelhooks cos I'm an eegit. Made for a great sequence though

Had three or four goes at the end of the day. Can see it working, just need to get on it when fresh. Fantastic friction and a super looking problem.
