Easter 3 Days - day 2 at Prossers Reef.

A good steady start to 1 but too cautious to 2. My original plan for 2 to 3 was to run along the creek to just south of the control and climb along the line of rock but the creek was SO slow that I bailed at the first junction and climbed diagonally up through the semi open bare rocks then traversed through the two gullies to the east and used the big boulder as my AP. A tiny bit to the right of the straight line to 4 was good and only lost 15 sec at the end fluffing around getting down the rocks to the left of the control - should have gone right. I missed 5 a tiny bit to the left and had to run back to it so lost another 10 sec. Straight on 6, but aimed off a tiny bit to the left on 7. Straight to 8 and 9 and used the gully before 10 as my AP so I curved a little to the left. Then I sort of lost the plot for a leg and thought the control was up the side of the main gully and I needed to be careful etc. when in fact it was in the bottom of the main gully Nd I should have gone straight and hard, which I did on 12 to 14. A better run than yesterday but still making a couple of poor decisions - a lack of O lately probably hasn't helped.
