The new gem by Hukkataival in South Africa and the ascents by Webb and Puccio
The finnish climbers sends a new line among the hardest ones in Rocklands30 June 2017
On his Facebook page, Nalle Hukkataival reports about his first ascent of a new line in Rocklands, The Finnish line at the Coop, that he defines as "A gem rarer than diamonds" and that he judges as one of the toughest boulder in Rocklands. This means that the possible grade is at least 8C, the fourth climbed by Nalle in South Africa. In any case, the pictures show the beauty and majesty of the line, qualities which are always the focus of the finnish climber.
In the meanwhile, also Jimmy Webb is in Rocklands and in June he sent three 8B+: Simple Knowing Low, Cosmic Artifact and The Shadows.
Finally, Alex Puccio does an hat-trick and in Mt Evans she sends her third 8B in June with Evil Backwards.
