Didn't think I was was gonna get it done (or my draws back) when it turned into a waterfall. Dries quicker than I expected. Awesome!

4th go, (1st of day, 3rd day on route) Best sport pitch in the UK?
Toby Dunn - Lead RP - 02/Jul/11 with Martin Fisher

Bottom-roped after Robin's successful redpoint, belayed by Dale. By far the hardest route I have ever got on. Couldn't reach the top.
