Hidden - Lead β - 29/Aug/09

Fell off crux, comedy upside-down fall into the tree branches. Did the crux easily second go but the cleft at the top proved a complete mare, had to leave the helmet in the recess to be able to do the full body jam!
Misha - Lead dog - 18/Oct/08

Misha left his gear in after Mike failed to second it, so used it on the way past.
