Tom Peckit has linked C&A Traverse into ThBolde Bulb to produce Bulbhaul, on the Keel boulder at Almscliff, UK. "Individually the moves on Bulbhaul are not altogether that hard. There is no 8B move on the problem. It is the linking of them all that renders the difficulty. Having never climbed, or ever really attempted, an 8B+ before I am reluctant to give that grade. I have tried Kaizen at Woodwell (a John Gaskins 8B+) but that is incomparable. Therefore, I propose a possible 8B+ and leave it for someone to confirm, or not, as the case may be."
