βeta: I'm suprised that the voting for the grades gives 3c, I found it pretty hard for 4a, although I am a bit out of practise at the moment. I thought I was coming off several times... at some points awkward is an understatement (especially as the midway crack is a bit green)! However, I managed to do it all without bridging, so maybe that's where I went wrong. Despite all that though, it was thoroughly enjoyable!
