BestPractice 12 Aug Lead dog Planned to attempt the OS, but the weather had o the ideas. Started to rain just as I reached the ledge - which is prob first crux. Lowered off and waited for rain to pass. Got back on and got to the anchor with lots of rests. (no clipstick required). Def felt lot harder than Sacred Angel - maybe even 7a+!? Should go in another sesh or 2. Very sharp holds so not much scope for repeated attempts.
