BestPractice 18 May Lead dog Not sure I'm doing the bottom section right? Is the big left hand jug allowed, just left of the 2nd clip? Assume the crux is then the bit just above this? Well that's how I'm doing it. Should go clean next time.

dom94 9 Apr Lead G/U Fluffed a sequence low down before the crux, went completely wrong missing out a massive hold. Fixed it and got it next time. Crux is very powerful but it is relatively ok after that.

Longsufferingropeholder 22 Sep, 2017 Lead O/S Got through the crux with thoughtless, tenacious throws and slaps. Left me with nothing in the tank so was fighting the pump all the way up. Just about held it together though. Couldn't let myself drop it; Big Ron was watching from the sidelines.
