Almost got it putting draws in, but off at final move again. Sorted out beta and got it next go (3rd RP). Really good climb with lots of interest the whole way.

1st go that day, 3rd go in total. Warmed up on Witherslack Alice
cooperman - Lead RP - 01/Jun/13 with Liam Lonsdale

3rd go. Tough - three similar cruxes using small, sharp holds in the upper section. Thankfully, the rests are (barely) sufficient. I suspect not wanting to fall on the scary looking final bolt was all that got me through the finish!
