julesp - TR dog - 29/Mar/12 with Iain

One go bolt-to-bolt to work out the moves and warm up. Nearly got it first and second go, failing at the move to the pocket after the roof. Figured out some better left foot heel-toe beta, which made the clip and move fairly straight forward. Good route and nice to finally do it about 7 years after giving up on it...

2nd proper burn of the day. Felt easier than expected once I'd reminded myself of the moves. Bit of a one move wonder, but very nice climbing nonetheless.

First time ive ever been able to do the individual moves! Chuffed! Long long way from red point.
