Binigo 6 Aug Lead RP Good to get this done! Had around 10 RP attempts - I think more than I’ve ever had on a route; but poor conditions and bad beta meant I repeatedly dropped it from either the last or second last move. Made a few changes and felt solid. High 7c+ ?

Ed Booth 6 Aug, 2015 Lead RP Dogged to put clips in and warm up. Did next go. Think the GC extension is a little harder than this. This is a good worthwhile link.
