Kind of- I was stemmed low and kept pushing higher until I had my back to the roof and was coming out horizontally. I remember looking directly down at Jo while she belayed and talking about the position and gear. Eventually I threw the right hand up in the crack on what as you can see in that shot. I dropped down and out onto it, spinning around to face the other way and then pulled over the roof on it. It was amazingly secure, really.
