2nd 7c and in the same session as my 1st (Dominatrix). Quite close to the flash, fell off the final slap before the rest. Went quite steadily second go.

In two halves. Found the move from the pockets to the big flat hold hard, after annoying start... (2RP's so far)
Dave Warburton - Lead dog - 19/Jun/12 with Luke Tilley, Conor

Bolt to bolt. Lower groove started to come together. Uncomfortable pocket section above is the crux and will need serious refinement. Upper wall eases after the rest but isn't trivial. An interesting and viable project.
