Led the first pitch of Three Doves to the second pitch of Anne Oh!. P1 had some nice moves, but P2 was amazing. Multiple, 5.8 cruxes, with gear where you need it, but not necessary where I would have liked it. Thoughtful, and committing, not the best route for a new 5.8 leader (Son of Easy O, Absurdland seemed easier). Bring small and finger-sized gear, and place it whenever possible - it might be awhile until you get another chance.
