Name that climb - emoji version

This topic has been archived, and won't accept reply postings.
 Agar Jelly 25 Mar 2020

After the film emoji thread, someone suggested a climbing version. I don't have the time or knowledge to compile a big list but I thought we could all chip in with some of our favourites? Here's an hard very difficult one to begin with... 

🚲 💩 

 Agar Jelly 25 Mar 2020

Okay, okay.

That was supposed to be 'pedal' 'stool' route - Pedestal Route

Sorry it might have been too cryptic (impossible!)

PS I see my clue now completely differently to in the preview; I get a different emoji plus the letters "UM" instead of the US flag! Seems to have worked though!

Depends on your platform. I think a lot of these are set up from iPhones. When viewed on a PC they change a lot and can become impossible
