Very enjoyable, tricky crux right at the top! Should go clean next attempt, especially using Angela's beta rather than my dyno technique!

DorsetGareth - Lead RP - 11/May/14 with Andy Wiseman, Tom B

Got badly spanked by this. I was absolutely shagged by the time I got round to trying it, but I still reckon it's pretty hard for 6c+. Top sequence is great. Nearly got it second RP.
