A boulder on a rope for me. To the top on the first time through the bulge.

Well I did not expect that! First session redpointing, first time I did the bulge, 3 go of the day, 6 sessions. At the start of this year 8a seemed like a huge number, I couldn't conceive climbing 8c at all let alone 5 months after doing my first 8. Just a group of mates left at the crag made it a good scene, such a good feeling to be stood on victors ledge.

Opened the account. bit above my pay scale but psyched to see where i need to get to. Winter of bouldering might be on the cards. Keen to maybe try a bit next spring. Hard bulge. did some of the moves through it.

no expectations of day or send go was only planning to do links but got away with the link from the ground to the top, I agree with Jon with respect to the quality of the route
