It was going dark, but in reality I really could not see the point in carrying on, unless you like bridging, maybe one to return to... should have got on Gideon instead !

Intimidating to look at but climbs really well, might have to go for some long runners in crews route if I get round to leading this one

Led the first half and took a big fall at the crux tried again but was too pumped. Matt led the rest and I came up on clean second.
