3 or 4 false starts on bottom move despite soloing Wild Things immediately before probably due to low blood sugar. Went easily after 5 mins rest and some food - called it an o/s, though maybe a RP?

Mr Wild - Solo O/S - 14/Nov/10

Direct start, after doing the other 2 routes here. One hand on arete on left for one move which is probably out. Don't care, just fun after the slab.
