1st RP. Should have onsighted it but rather than traversing right under the roof I tried to go straight through, which was desperate!

finally, onsighting feels good again. cool knee bar...prob 7a+ but brilliant moves all the way. Then worked Mescalito... (and accidentally tr'd clean to the new dawn ledge at the end of the day on second 'dog' - oops, should've been on lead!)
