Trust Issues 8B+ Boulder | flash 23rd Jul 2017

Usually, you’ll go out and do something that you’re pleased with. And then that instant people will ask “how was that?” You don’t really know, you’re just pleased you’ve done it. I did think about that when I was in Rocklands this time because I flashed quite a hard thing. I kind of went up there, had one go, and climbed it — which took what like 30 seconds? But you’re always asked for your opinion on this sort of thing at the very instant that you’ve done it. It misses out on the 20 years that have led up to that point. Which is, well, a lot more of it.

First re-ascent after a heel hook that was used on the FA snapped off.

It definitely feels harder now than it did with the heel spike. No idea on the grade. Maybe hard 8A+. But very high quality however hard it is.” said Ned after the ascent. [1]
