I made a quick redpoint of Austrian Oak the other day. This is a tricky little 8b at Malham. I had a day on it last year, but had forgotten all the moves. After a brief day working them out again, i had a quick redpoint. Falling pretty high after a foot pop. I came back a week later and it went 2nd go of the day. Normally routes feel easy on the redpoint, but this didn't. Was a bit of a fight!
Other than that, i have done a few other 8a's in a day at Dinbren. The new crag of choice as an alternate to Malham. Always quiet. Weather is always good. Lots of classics. Still a few hard routes left to do FA's on. (but don't tell anyone)
With this level i have early on, and my trip to Spain next week to really get a jump on the fitness, i feel i should be able to achieve my goal of the year and get my first 8c in the bag! (Whilst holding down a full time job!)
