Could you tell us more about the ascent?
I start trying it 4 years ago and since session one, I fell on this hard mantle. In isolation, the mantle worked pretty well but from the bottom always something went wrong Like cold fingers, no friction, small mistakes or hesitation. I spent around three sessions per season on it but this season I changed my beta for the mantle using a heel hook instead of just standing. It makes it a bit more physical but way safer. Usually, I always prefer standing before a heel hook so I am glad that I tried it and it worked out :)
