2nd RP. Think I could have flashed with good beta and should have done it 1st RP but I was lazy with my sequencing for the last hard move and it wasn't a good way to do it whilst fatigued. Keen for after work hits here.

First go today, putting in the clips. Being fresh makes a huge difference! :)
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.

thrutch - Lead RP - 20/May/12 with Sven

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.
