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...

slow progress but at least its progress - finding it tricky / v technical
