Yesteray we went to Chironico to get some good conditions and try some things I had looked at previously. I was really psyched on a couple of short power problems No Mystery 8A+ and its counterpart Schule de Leben 8B. I figured out the moves and sent the left one, No Mystery, quickly. The powerful, […]
