Worked for a bit but had left too much skin on other boulder problems and burnt too much energy on jerrys traverse. Excuses excuses ........

Close, only had 20mins on so next time. Holding the swing is the crux for me.
Ewano - Sent dnf - 10/Apr/14 with Joel Brown

mmm, close...... great burly moves with a long but surprisingly easy long reach. got the match, held the swing but the move left proved the crux for me. Need to regrow skin and I will return.
