Felt strong on the warm up and it went quite easily first go of the day. Never even done a 7b before, so very happy with the tick.

Having inside-flagged myself off the route (a new way to fall off!) after doing the crux on my 2nd go, the tick had to wait till next session...

Eventually got the sequence right on the 4th session. Would have gone a lot sooner if I'd worked out the correct way to use the holds...

Thanks to Iain for making me do it again today it was a much more satisfying send. The start finally felt in control
julesp - Lead RP - 15/Jun/14 with Iain

Thought I'd done it till Iain told me he'd taken my weight on the rope when I cut loose below the first bolt
