Davros the Psyched - Lead RP - 07/Mar/15

First RP attempt after putting clips in. Wasn't sure I had a plan for the first bit really but got through quite tidily and managed to hold the 3 big moves (for me) together afterwards

Harder than the route to the left although most of the holds on the harder section were soaking and unusable. Good fun.

guy xavier percival - Lead RP - 29/Nov/12 with paul

im not sure i climbed the correct line, for me getting to the second bolt was very hard and took me a few goes, after the 3rd bolt i moved right instead of left, this was very easy but i think perhaps of route?

Onsighted this thinking it was desperate for f6c, somehow I confused it for 'The Wages of Fear' !

1st redpoint.good technical moves but pleasently simple to read.satisfying reach for the ledge- evidence of people headin right then coming back in- direct is better.second clip tricky, clipped it at belly button height.
