2nd problem looked amazing!
I have to say that overhanging crimp pulling bores me to tears (probably because I can't do it) However, The climbing of A Tale of Two Gabors is absolutely amazing.

I can feel the full body pump just watching!
5 seconds of google give you the right answer: Gabor Szekely (who has modestly named the boulder after himself).
