James Webb ha encadenat al flash “Roses and Blue Jays” 8b de boulder confirmat a Great Barrington. Comenta al seu 8a.nu “el boulder més espectacular, avui he sigut capaç d’escalar-lo de manera perfecta sense cometre cap error. Un somni fet realitat.” Es converteix així en la sisena persona en encadenar tal grau al flash! A continuació un video de l’escalador Evan Race encadenant la linia.
Jimmy Webb flashed the iconic New England boulder problem Roses and Blue Jays (V13). This is almost certainly the first flash of the line. Last week, I asked Jimmy what he wanted to do during his trip to the Northeast and he called it. “I’d like to give a good flash attempt on Roses and Blue Jays,” he said. He writes on his 8a scorecard: “The most spectacular boulder. Freak good conditions today and I was able to climb the boulder perfectly making not a single mistake. A dream come true.” A video of Evan Race on the line.
