Slinging a horn at the start worked well then backed up with a 1" cam in a horizontal after standing which was a marginal placement but would have held. The slung horn is what protected the move onto the plates (vs. coming in from the right near the bush). Tricky after the 1st bolt, looked more straightforward from the ground.
