All emoji questions from Natalie Berry. Some are phonetic, others are more literal or abstract. 38 routes and 2 boulder problems. Good luck!
Tricky! Well psyched to get the first question in the extreme rock section right!
Extreme Rock definitely had the most emojiable names for some reason!
Thought that was one of the easier ones as it’s so unique. Even with the help of the classic, hard and extreme rock ticklists, I only got 55%. Not very good at lateral thinking!

Oh! Do people actually look stuff up to get the answers? Must remember that for next time! ;)
I haven't for the other ones (and scored under 50% each time) but this time it was still fun even after looking through the ticklists as that didn't provide the actual answers. There were a few I didn't get right even with the assistance of the ticklists!
Q7 and 24 aren't taking the correct answers for me. Or what seems like obviously the correct answer after double checking classic and hard rock.
Fixed. There was a missing word from the answer route names. Apologies!
Dino I got 5...total.
can you send me the answers?
For some clues I just get a box with a cross through it. Tricky 🙄
