come on!!! who else has done this esoteric gem? its amazin, dont use the side runner in the VS and you can get these new small cams in the break, that makes it a sound E6,
last moves are the crux so be prepared

It is now brushed, but the green will return! Still hard with gear in the corner. I wasn't inspired by the gear placements in the break though! Maybe I should wear my glasses next time. A small alien in the pocket lower down is good, but takes up half the handhold. Deserves a better write up. Andy Stewart
