Flash pump after struggling to get the 4th clip in. Top roped after and got the next move, but fell off the juggy roof bit. I am rubbish!

A polished start, a long way to the third bolt and a weird 4th clip where you end up clipping over the crimped right hand... all before the crux and a juggy roof finish! I was proud of my head.

One fall and two rests. Never too hard, just pumpy.
