2013 The Zone E9 Lead | worked 11th Mar 2013

2015 Megalopa 8c+ Lead | worked Apr 2015
2016 Mission Impossible E9 Lead | worked Jun 2016
Third ascent.

I'd say this is the first route I have done which genuinely felt E9, purely for the physical difficulty (8a+/b). A lot of the others are kind of hovering on the border.
