Blow Out V4- 6B
Not looking forward to the thin top out as I was solo.   Super fun gym-like move to the lie-back.   This felt darn hard. Not sure if the heel hook beta was correct.   Making that first throw kinda sets the tone.  Diego is making it look easy here.   Mark shaking out before making the terrifying top-out.
