give her a chance, very fun holds while going for a long pump ride. Bring a brush to help it along. Also stick the second if at all possible.

I thought this was one of the best of the 11's on the crag. Really good and already pretty clean. Nice work! I think there is plenty of room (and a decent line) for another good route right of Monkey in the Middle.
