Henry.Todman 12 Nov, 2017 Lead RP Back to finish it off. Climbed twice for good measure. First matching the vulcan pocket, and then again without matching to satisfy the purists.

Henry.Todman 5 Nov, 2017 Lead dog Worked the moves and sussed out my beta pretty quickly. Got through the crux on my redpoint attempt but then fluffed the feet and came off the finish. Keen to come back and finish it.
