Michael James Spring 19 Jul, 2018 Lead dog Accidently dogged this after deviating from wages of fear trying to repeat it. Knew wages wasn’t that hard! Liked it some much I had another go and got to the top after falling at the crux... done in two sections so I reckon I’ll have it fairly easily next time!
