2 burns. The first felt nails, the second felt like it was coming together....went up to strip the route after but no skin. Hard but possible once I get efficient...

Went up cold expecting to dog it as a warm up and unexpectedly found myself at the top. Fell off in the groove of the Purse 20mins later. Sooooo close!
