thomasadixon - 2nd O/S - 11/Jun/09 with Becca

Some pretty hard moves but got it clean, could imagine it being somewhat scary! Mike teetered off right only to find when he had finished there was an easier way!

1pt rest, on the final slopey break. Don't know how the gear held bodyweight - v.flared placement. Unlike the guidebook description, I found it got harder and harder towards the top!
