Think I might have done this before, therefore retro/amnesia-flash?
Ally Smith - TR rpt - 22/Jul/14 with Curly Chris

think i finally figured this out with a lot of help from alex. the lower wall suddenly went from desperate to pretty manageable with semi-rests.
leon - TR rpt - 17/Jul/14 with Alex

up once with rests to get clips in. one clean TR and then lead clean. another one i didn't manage last year
