Overwhelmed with patience..2nd RP. Clambered through loose blocks to the top for the full experience. Happy.

P1+2. Enjoyed the moves much more than Body Machine. Amazing rest with at least 4 jamming/kneebar possibilities, but sustained and powerful from there.

In one huge pitch with long quick draws. A 70m rope is suitable. Superb route.
