The Fin, v7

After a couple of weeks cooped up with a pain in the arse of a tail bone injury I started to feel 100% mid week. I was partner-less and october in leavenworth can be a game of Russian Roulette...one wrong move and you could find yourself sucked in to a maze of beer gardens and lederhosen.

No Pain No Gain, v5

For two weeks I had been dreaming of a perfect little overhanging finger crack finger crack up in mad meadows and so a plan formed.

For the record: Sent "No Pain No Gain" on my 3d try and "Occum's Razor" on my 2nd (had worked both for one session previously) and worked some harder stuff.
