+Robo finishing the Inertia Reel Traverse...in his mind., 75 kb On 12th December the Australian climber, Garth Miller flashed Inertia Reel Traverse at the Roaches, according to sources at UKBouldering.com and his scorecard at 8a.nu.

This rounded low-level traverse at the Roaches was first climbed by Jerry Moffat in the late 1980's and is given a bouldering grade of Font 8a+/V12.

This could possibly be the hardest bouldering flash achieved on UK rock and was achieved in what boulderers call 'mint' conditions - that is around 4 degrees celsius.
