Both Tom and Andi are fairly tall fellas and also not too bad at jumping. We think Boom Bip might be pretty hard.
Check it out in this excellent video:
And for a bit more jumping around, we have a potentially new problem up in 'The County'. Northumberland sandstone is home to a few crazy leaps, such as Lupino Lane (UKC Report) and now it has another.
'Larn Streng' might even be graded a tongue in cheek 'controversial Font 8C' and why not! :-)
It goes between Magic Leap and Thundering Apoplexy at Back Bowden - and is a harder version of the latter, but apparently a much better line.
Boza told us:
"It involves a third or even fourth generation dyno technique utilising not one but two kicks on the wall to then reach the break above."
Hmm, looks like a running jump to us!
Problem name: Larn Streng
Ascensionist: Jake Handyside (Boza Junior)
