Very, very fingery...or have i been away to long Dinbren?

Did all the moves this time but the top feels desperate and so finger intensive!
Adam Booth - TR dog - 16/Jul/14 with David Liu

Account open. Need to learn the bottom bit really well to have any chance on the dimples at the top!
Adam Booth - TR dog - 13/Jul/14 with Rob Ierson, Ed Booth

First rp. Direct, no sneaking off right for a rest

Nice route - feels different to other Dinbren 8's. I've lead it clean a couple of times now - Initially using the crack half way up, then without it - slightly harder without crack and more height dependant - either way, brilliant slopey finish through the bulge is what it's all about!

crux hold wet today, still having difficulty working out moves through bulge. feels harder than 7c+ or maybe im just using wrong beta?
