One knee bar and drop knee sequence! Felt easy on ‘the one’!

Did in about 10 minutes warming up today. Felt very soft... Nevertheless fantastic climbing and very happy to have ticked such a classic of the crag!

Mainly reminded myself of beta. Managed to link section to first cut loose. 27 Apr - managed move from toe hook. linked from jug to finish. New beta for end. 30 Apr - couple of good burns. All but last 6c section. Managed cut loose moves and tweaked end beta. 4 may - couple of good burns. all but last two moves.
