my first 7a/7a+, very pleased. bouldery in the middle, go-y move to a sloper-side pull from a good right hand side jug, then high left foot to gain an ok crimp followed by good right hand jug. then to a not so good crimp and up into a good undercut. need foot sequence, then good left hand pocket, drop right knee and go for ledge, followed by easy moves to top. a nice sequence. i am biased because it was my first.. loved every second of it.

either i was tired (very possible), it was too hot or this is just hard: felt thin and sequencey. difficulties short-lived though. worthwhile.
