McColl and Pringle repeat Evilution direct

"Tis the season" it seems. For mega highballing that is. Both Sean McColl and Ethan Pringle, on his way back from injury, has repeated Evilution direct at the Buttermilks, Bishop. Sean, had tried it on a previous trip, and now completed his ground-up ascent, while Ethan rapped the line prior to his. If my memory serves me right, the direct version is actually a tad easier than the original one, but just as tall and intimidating (this I'm sure of).
