Had to finish up last two clips of Xavier Zoo as I didnt notice it shared a lower off with a route someone else was on.

I did have a bit of information about this from Steve, but not quite substantial enough to call it a flash. It was really fun - nice climbing up the wall, and then some interesting harder stuff to the last bolt. Brilliant end to a really good day for me.
