When Charlie started charging at this spot, a backside smith wasn't the trick that I expected. He was locking in easy every time and gradually grinding further and further along the ledge. His speed increased with each attempt until finally he had full control and popped right out and over the end.

This was one of the many amazing sessions that I was fortunate to be at during the filming of Cover Version, and one of my favourite photos from my trips to London.
