markK6 3 May, 2014 Lead O/S Started on the slab for the opening moves but fancied a fight so committed to the chimney, there was a Blackbirds nest with 4 eggs about a third of the way up,the finishing moves are interesting which found me having to rotate my body to "thrutch" up to the top. Great Scrap!
