After years of work, I did FA this in 2016. Two 9/10 boulder problems separated by a brief shake on a small rail. The first is powerful big moves over underclings, and the second is big moves and body tension up the patina flakes.

This is a really fun power endurance route. Well done, Ben!

It gets loads of shade and is reasonable in warmer weather, as the grips aren't especially small. Good family project, too. Emerald Isle has a little something for everyone, a micro approach, and great camping right below the crag.
