After falling twice from the easy finish due to it being absolutely dripping wet, finally the rain held off and the wind dried it off for the send. First V8 (Depending on the grading of Wedkiller at the Tor) mega problem!

Don't know where I pulled this out of, but mega psyched I did! This has been a very long albeit disjointed siege. Glad I worked that end bit as I was pretty boxed despite using the kneebar rest. First font 7B and first french 7c. psyched!
