Second ascent.

Ixeia 8b+ (Lead Onsight) 09 Oct 2017 (approx)

Hell yeah!! Fought hard from bottom to top, and climbed well apart from nearly pumping out and punting off trying to get a knee in low down. Down to 8b/+ in the new guide, fuck it, consensus rules! Plus Siegrist took the + and he downgrades all my hard stuff ;)

Pilgrimage 8B+ (Boulder) 05 Mar 2013

Second ascent.

In the process of working the problem Alex found a lot of knee bars that were not used on the first ascent and which make the problem easier.
