2nd go... felt hard but friends subsequently refined my beta two or three times so perhaps soft 7a?

Soo close to onsight. Hold was wet. Would have been in the bag if it was dry

Dave Warburton 21/Jun/12 Lead O/S

Tricky start, really think about your feet. Was sweating up badly today on everything, so top was a bit of a fight.

The type of route that you would do after a days work, nothing fancy but still fairly hard for 7a i thought.
