So psyched to get up this today! Found new micro beta which meant I was able to repeat it a few minutes later! What a great problem.

Cheers for the beta Hugo!

Stuck 'the' move several times but never managed the last flick to the jug rail.

A belter of a problem. The excessive choice of footholds is like a gameshow; choose poorly and it'll throw you off...

So close- huge progress this session, finalised my foothold selection and had meaningful attempts at the cross move. closest attempt started catching the swing before my left foot blew! Probably wont be back until december
