βeta: At first I assumed the side pulls were off route and so tried to do it the reachy desperate crimpy way. However, I then did it with the side pulls and it felt reasonable for 7a this way.

myrddinmuse 3 Sep Lead dog Had two goes on this. Got through the crux clean, only to pump out and ping off on the last move of any difficulty. Fresh hands mean this will definitely go next try. The high unlikely sidepull is the key for me!
