It went ok once I had the start figured out! Several goes tweaking beta low down then nearly dropped the easy upper half on the RP.
Nick Russell - Lead RP - 19/Dec/14

I think I have a sequence now, just a case of putting it all together.
Nick Russell - Lead dog - 13/Dec/14

oof, tough start. Maybe if I come back to it fresh I'll be able to do some of the moves.

3 goes to the chain, although I worked the first bit quite a lot. This is definitely one to bring a clip stick for - really didn't enjoy sketching up to the first bolt to get it clipped.

In a day (with a bit of help working it out). I did enjoy telling everyone how my day was that evening in the tobacco factory, even if I did have to yell: BREAN. SEVEN BEE PLUS. THE ONE RIGHT OF CHULILLA
