In this short video from Bjarne Sahlen of Endless Flow we see Dave Evans climb the classic Welsh boulder problem of Jerry's Roof (V9) followed by Pete Robins making the first ascent of the Lou Ferrino + Bonnie link-up in Parisella's Cave.

Pete made this link earlier in the summer and it is a V13 boulder problem, but due to the length it could also be considered an 8c+ route (French sport grade).

Pete was very pleased to make this link and has also been trying an extension to the link, which involves more climbing above the finish of Bonnie, clipping a couple of bolts at the end as it is too high for bouldering, which would create a 9a (sport grade) hybrid boulder/route.

Lou Ferrino is a popular V10 in its own right and Bonnie is a more recent addition to the cave, first climbed by Gaz Parry and weighs in at V12.
