Back in February this year I started a new job which, for the first time in a few years, is part time: I have Thursdays off. To start with, during the Sydney monsoon season, my Thursdays were generally taken up with surfing, yoga and working my way through the recipes of the Country Women's Association cook book (the ginger crisp is a winner). As the season has steadily changed I have more and more been venturing out to the boulders, including checking out some lesser known locales in the depths of Sutherland Shire. One of these is a spot called Abbott's Road, and in true Shire style there are only a handful of problems but one of them is a stonking roof line. I think it's a problem of Jumpin' Joe's called Crankshaft. On my first Thursday there I though I might do it in a session, but it took another two Thursdays before I actually did it (or at least, did what I thought was it). It is a lengthy number requiring three different camera angles to fit it all in (see below) and is a veritable polka of heel and toe maneuvers.

Anyway here's a little vid for you to watch when you're supposed to be doing something else. Enjoy.
