Big lead of the night was Gareth Digital Orbit (E3 5c) - a massive 2ft dyno leap from a fallen block and you swing onto the jugs on the nose. Heel hooking and hard pulling get you upright. The whole adventure was filmed - expect to see a video on the website in a week or two! Andy did't manage the dyno but hand traversed in at VS 5a.
