Tom Randall on The Kraken

The hardest crack boulder in the world

25 January 2016

Tom Ranbdall, tha famous Wide Boyz able to climb off width routes in all the world, opened last summer the incredible The Kraken, a terrible 8b problem that follows a crack roof. Probably the hardest in this style. “I know routes like Century, Recovery Drink, etc are just the start,” Tom wrote on his blog. “This game has got a whole lot further to go. Where do you go when you’re puffing out of your ass on a V10 though? More stamina? Build another cellar crack? Work on your pinkie jamming? I think the answer for me lay in trying to find or climb a much (much) more powerful crack. No endurance factor, less cheater-beta and with plenty of power needed.” The Kraken is at Hartland Quay, Devonshire.
