Sunday we hit 91.1 and spent the day doing the entire orange circuit while getting baked by the Sun, I flashed all but 2 of them. Crush Cooper & Scott flashed the lot! Ben, Gary, Jen and Justine enjoyed picking the good lines and the beauty of the forrest surroundings in the relaxed atmosphere. I was awarded Ern the Worm for letting the team down.

By Tuesday morning the shoulders and forearms were feeling pretty shot, but we went out anyway to Isitis. Starting on some blue's and red's it wasn't long before we spotted a cool looking roof on White 10 got F7b+ from a sit but that looked brick hard so we settled on the stand at F6b. The top out was some classic font swimming goroveling on the rounded top desperate for a anything to hold onto, luckily Lee and I had packed out arm bands and stayed afloat long enough to send it. there was just enough time to sneak in a couple more red and whites before a relaxed lunch. Afterwards we crossed the path into Franchard Hautes-Plaines for a go on a overhanging problem called Surplomb de la Coquille. I flashed the stand at F6c and once the Lee and Ben had crushed it in, we started on the sit. Scott showed me how he did it but I was lacking some reach, so I inveneted some short arse beta and 2 goes later was holding the massive chicken head at the top grinning for the camera. As I was taking my boots off the police arrived and shouted GET OUT GET OUT BIG FIRE!! so we made a hasty retreat to a cafe in Barbizon for a beer.
