Took me a couple tries. For some reason I kept trying to go around the tongue until a buddy noticed I have longer arms and could just reach to the left side. Also my Moccasym shoes have zero heel hooking so I had to do things a little different. Funny story is some Indian (from India) people came over the west side of the dry falls and wanted to see us climb this. They wouldn't let us leave, we were packed and ready to move on. We said ok and they were amazed that people actually climb and clapped when our friend showed them.
