Had no choice but to send it as Andy Cave and Ben Moon were waiting to get on the route.

Start of 4th session. Bit of a shock to say the least. Went up hoping, at best, to lead from the start past "the press" for the first time (came close to that on 3rd session). I managed that.... and just kept on going!
