still cant get the heel up
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...
