Did much better than last year. Got the lower wall sorted. Just can't get enough back at the standing place to do the finish without a rest

Second 7a after jim grin. Felt way harder when practising but went perfect on 2nd rp. More dynamic and less rests is all. Great route!

Put the clips in lowering from J G and did some work on this one. A notch up from J G and no standing place below the harder direct finish.

JamesTurnbull97 23/Aug/16 Lead β

Definitely a notch harder than JG. Harder moves and less rest
