Retroflash. In hindsight it should have been obvious that a short draw on the bulge would cause issues higher up.

Em's second 7a onsight - a great route though the crux section is pretty short (+thin!) so very doable....easier than 7a+ next door we thought....

Easy 7a. RP on 2nd go.

didn't like the fall from the bulge, caught my leg on the rope and whipped my back into the rock upside down. Would be fine with draws pre-placed, could have clipped earlier. Or if i was less of a goon.
