Did not feel like the soft tick it's know as to me! Maybe I'm just not tall and not good at power moves over a roof! Maybe around 5 rpts spread over about 4 years! Toe hook beta was critical

Ethan - Lead - 16/Sep/13 with Don Walker

Psyched to do individual hard moves (off the deck and also through the roof) but power faded later on.
