jacko120 - Lead - 06/Apr/13

Followed Jimbo. Wasn't aware the flake was "supposed" to be loose, which gave a worrying shock and lead to me avoiding using it, which probably made the middle section harder. Start felt tough, and placing gear felt like it would have been strenuous.

At VS it felt tough for the grade. Good technical moves and pumpy.
