Hard for the grade; went up and down a few times looking for some gear before accepting my fate and committing to a powerful move off a fingerlock

Tough few moves at the beginning. Found it hard to place gear and fell off more than once!

found lovely pocket for the hand that needed it, that took away the offbalancy movement

One move wonder, though the move is a nice. Wet top out which was the crux for me on a solo.
