Can you tell us more about your ascent?
I tried Noi (8b+) for the first time in October, the line was amazing and I was super motivated. After two weekends I made it and I started thinking about Noia. I knew it was a bit my style and the route was incredible. I also found a bad knee bar before the crux that helped me a bit. I fell on the traverse between Noi and Cobra three times and on Noi. Last Saturday, everything was perfect and I made it.
