First time on a 8a. Linked from floor to right of the second bolt

progress: 1st time ive done all the moves on an 8a (assuming this is 8a: 4 people say 7c+ on here and rockfax while 2 also claim 8a+ on rockfax). for me, the jury is out until i lead it but i think it just might be 8a. regardless, some of the moves are superb and it climbs really well when youve worked things out.

what a difference a year makes. this felt way better, still thin, technical and sustained but moves felt solid rather than sketchy. i dont believe this is 7c+, just too thin and tricky but i suppose it is short. still to do moves to gain crack but didnt try these today as tips were sore. reckon this is doable...
