Or 'Look mum, no hands!'
When I was a youth, I took one of my first leader falls on the Rasp after getting completely pumped out after the crux. A few years later, Garan told me that you can get a sneaky knee bar rest, which got me thinking...
On this ascent I found four knee bars, a heel hook and a leg jam. So I'm downgrading it to HVS for anyone who's seen this photo ;)
Thanks to Al for belaying and using the remote shutter device.

I bet Dan, that you were continually fluffing the moves and falling...!

Gave you a 5 for creativity but thinking of downgrading it a few points as you've now blown my onsight attempt.
Thanks Dan !

I remember having a similar experience, thought i was good on Grit until that spat me off with impunity. Good photo

That face looks ready to topple with all that weight on it, nice shots (another computer generated composition takes first place tut tut ;-)
