Si dH - Lead RP - 05/Aug/12 with Chris Foster

1/2 working goes then 3 failed redpoint attempts - all at the second big move up over the roof, with the right hand. Funny really as the thin lower wall is more outside my normal comfort zone.

Only just scraped up the onsight on this, my fingers were so cold I couldn't feel the holds toward the top, some were pretty dusty. Ended up just slapping and screaming my way from hold to hold.
