To see if it was still wired from last week - it was, but it was so wet it felt hard anyway. Love this movement.

Ended up being the warm-up. Went quite quickly, which felt good! Didn't hang the top or top it out as it was covered in melting snow, but no point being anal - hung around on the jugs after the difficulties no problem, despite them being wet and slushy (and dripping on the arete, which made the lower move harder) so I'll take the tick. This is all technique rather than power, which makes it very satisfying to solve! Feel like I could walk up it now i've sussed out the positions. Shame its not longer! Really good.
