cruised this easily tonight (back on form again? or just a lot cooler and better conditions for grit), was feeling so relaxed on the jams mid roof I even stopped to place some gear. Excellent 3 star roof jamming :) !!!

Clean in one go from the ledge under the roof (i.e. all the hard climbing up to the roof is a mod/diff), 2 falls/several retreats before getting a solid locker in the crack. (removing one of the pieces of gear made it easier though i almost did it the first time). Despite the cuts (didn't tape up!) like to do it again clean from the ground.

Gymnastic and hard. Rope in the way.
Tez29 - 2nd RP - 30/May/10 with Todd, Ivan

Had two very poor effort goes and really didn't make much of an impact at all before shouting 'take I'm a little girly girl with a little girly voice and no pubes'

Had looked forward to 'beating this into submission' for some time. However when the time came it all went horribly wrong. Main excuse was 'onset of illness leading to acute feeeling of weakness'
