pistol pete - 2nd - 06/Jun/14 with steve perry

absolutely loved the "heart pumping moves" straight into a fantastic mind blowing position on the face, committing but fully enjoyable.

Mrs Weasel - 2nd - 10/Jun/12 with Rob Christie, JiveWeasel

Yes, it is a strenuous and "out there" move through the roof (see photo on UKC), but it is not 5b. Both myself (tall) and Mrs Weasel (considerbly shorter) think 5a max.

iceicebaby - 2nd O/S - 23/Jul/11 with Sam Wood
