Hard for its grade needed a few boosts!!

Fell off half way up, due to a foot slip. Started using the crack with right hand and crimps with left before moving to a layback position half way up. Hard for HS.

It's a good idea to put the gear you need on the right side of your harness. School boy error. Very interesting trying to get cams off the left hand side

Felt very tricky in the grade. Apparently one of the best gear placements prevents a layback move making the middle section much easyer.

Sandy attempted this but didn't like the middle section. He was trying to jam, I laybacked it and was fine.
