A couple years ago, before I had any strength or power, @smellyrelly took me to The Tugger telling me it was "only" V4. Neither of us were able to do any of the individual moves, and he then told me it had been upgraded to V6.
Fast forward to last summer. Armed with a new @organicclimbing pad, and a year of gym climbing @hivenorthshore, I was able to puzzle out all the moves in a single session. Unfortunately by the time I had worked out my beta, I was too beat to finish the problem. This was my best attempt from that first day. I managed to send third go my second session.
This boulder was particularly special. Not only was it my first 6, it was also the first time I wasn't trying a problem because that's where everyone else was. I figured out my own beta instead of trying what others were spraying at me, and found a sequence that matched my style.
@chriscarter142 inspired me to post this by his recent video of the same problem. Interesting to see the different styles.
