kiwi boy - 2nd O/S - 13/Jun/10 with kevin Van

After the cam in the break it's basically a solo. I fannied about putting a crap small cam and a small nut in on the right which I suppose gives you a bit of time to summon up the courage and figure out the way. Bobby whizzed straight up it which showed a complete lack of diplomacy for a meet leader!

Just messing about to keep warm. Instead of the break to the right, we all tried to go straight over the overhang. None succeeded!
