The second round of the 2009 BRYCS series is here all too soon! The team was looking forward to this round at their local wall and was expecting to be just as competitive as the last round, even though the fact they showed up was enough for me. The whole event went smoothly and the routes (set by Deg and Dan) were excellent. Some people were saying some were harder than the grade; we like to think of them as more challenging than harder.
