2nd session. Bagged it the only time I did the boulder problem. Very nearly screwed the pooch higher up but grim determination, and the pre-climb sachet of highly caffeinated goop, saw me through.

Good to get it done but not without falling off the top again, boulder problem felt easy today, 2nd go.

Flashed the boulder then fell off immediately after HAHA! Found some holds and did it next go, felt quite soft for 7c+... Maybe it's the long arms?

Thugtastic! Not over until the chain, so keep some shoulder power in reserve for the last move.

A great powerful bouldery start with a sustained finsh felt too hard for 7c+ though done on first redpoint.

Can't see how people are voting 8a for this. The top wall just isn't hard enough to warrant the 8a grade. 7c+, although a hard one if you find the bottom move at your limit.
