clean O/S spoilt by a slip at the overhang; ok on repeat attempt but like the description says I used a specialist knee move :-)

Solid move over the roof. Took a rest working it out.

Sam Cooke 31/Mar/12 Lead O/S

Managed it with a modicum of panache.

Pulling through the roof was interesting powerful move. Led off a high right foot as left ankle still weak, and after using technical knee got left foot high enough (like doing splits) to push over. Piece of cake after the overhang move.

Thin slabby start with easier mid section up to overhang. Went off route to the right to clear the overhang rested on rope before difficult power move. Top section was fine.
