Amongst the many strong climbers who competed in the event was Nalle Hukkataival, the world class Finnish boulderer.
Nalle visited the gritstone very briefly on his trip to the UK and below is a video from Ed Radcliffe documenting the evening at Stanage.
Mick Ryan introduced Nalle in a news item on UKC in 2010:
"Finnish climber Nalle Hukkataival started climbing at age 12 in 1998. In 2009 he climbed Livin' Large a boulder problem in Rocklands which he gave 8C. Earlier in 2009 he repeated Jade (Font 8C) in the Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP), Colorado, first climbed by Daniel Woods in 2007, a problem which repeat ascensionist Tyler Landman called, "The testpiece of my generation. " To put that in perspective possibly less than ten climbers have bouldered 8C or V15."
