20 Happy Hooker

Sopping wet but thought I could still give it a go. I was wrong. Almost broke a leg climbing over the starting boulder, got covered an mud and decided it was not worth it. Definitely a summer crag!

Steep, getting steeper. Pretty pumpy, but really super fun moves. I need to work on power endurance! Nice clean whippers as well, no stress.
