One big throw, also got pumped at the top as I have zero stamina...

First 7a flash! Felt a bit easy so was probably soft to be honest. Nice route though. Complete jug fest apart from the bulge. Others have confirmed that the bulge moves are 7a but I'd say the rest of the moves are 6c or easier.

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

Silly bolting. Was trying to do the 7a+, ended up on the 7a. Here a bolt, there a bolt, everywhere a bolt.

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....
Chad123 - AltLd O/S - 23/Oct/10 with Emily

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.
