Noble and Takeuchi send 8B+ boulder

After less than one month since the first ascent by Mike Adams, Bordello, 8C boulder in Earth Quarry, has been now repeated by James Noble who gives a personal grade of 8B+ thanks to an easier sequence:

“Very nearly broke me (literally), that’s the hardest I’ve pushed my fingers on any problem. Used mikes left hand sidepull crimp sequence on the stand but a slightly easier sequence on the sit hence the personal downgrade. Still the hardest thing I’ve done” (from James Noble’s page).

In the meanwhile, in the area of Mizugaki – JapanToshi Takeuchi repeated Takaki Mikura SD and Decided, both 8B+. Thanks to these ascents, Takeuchi now joins a total number of twenty 8B+ and six 8C in his career…
