I redpointed Orange Aid the other weekend, but I wasn't sure whether the flake system next to the crack was supposed to be on or not. Does anybody here know?

It feels like it should be, I just wanted to make sure I did it the "10b way", just to have a better sense of where my climbing is right now...

Thanks!
Dave

did the route setters put the same colored tape on the flake as they did on the rest of the holds? If so, then yes it is on.

Congrats on a great lead! From what I've been told, as long as you didn't intrude on Alcoa next to it.... you did it. I think you'd have had a hard time getting off by that much that you'd be on Alcoa.

Thanks!

Yeah, wandering over to Alcoa would have been interesting. :)

Just wanted to confirm... sometimes there are silly rules about these things.

You should have had like two hard moves after the great finger locks end to a bomber hand jam which you should fill with a cam from the next higher holds to give your second the classic experience.

Does that sound about right?
