In between battles with the local commuting options and food poisoning Pringle managed to climb a handful of hard 5.13/easy 5.14 routes in one or two tries.

The aforementioned Spicy Noodle was first done early last year by a visiting Chris Sharma which gives us a good excuse to revisit a few video from Sharma’s trip:
