If someone can point me in the direction of a crail-grab trick tip vid for tomorrow please do!

I guess it's easy enough, pop and grab the nose with both hands while boning out the tail?

Crail isn't a double handed nose grab or a cross rocket. Back hand to the nose.

Like this guy says.

Here is an appropriate graphic



Any updates from on the hill? I was hoping tomorrow or Thursday was going to be the best day, but it looks like the storm might be petering out?
