Led 1st pitch, Cool move getting round the holly tree! 2nd pitch felt pretty easy, the 5b direct move was cool though. Easier than Route 2.
Hugh Simons - AltLd O/S - 08/Apr/15 with Euan Todd

Did the 2nd pitch with 5b direct moves. Felt much better after getting spanked off Route 2. This was much easier.
