wrapped in bacon - 2nd O/S - 14/Aug/12 with Daryl

after backing off acheron, so reused lower gear. quite a long run out on crux section although gear below it is good. found it quite unnerving!

Maybe I did this wrong, but it felt very hard in the grade. Placed gear in the second break and that was it until I reached the place where it joins the VS. A number of thin moves between gear.
