Malcolm Smith has added another desperate problem to the boulders of Dumbarton, near Glasgow.
His new problem is called Firefight and is graded Font 8B. The problem links the Pressure Cave in to a font 8A finish called Firestarter. There's more info on the Stone Country Blog.
Malcolm has previously climbed the super hard Gut Buster (8B+) at Dumbarton (UKC News) back in September 2008, see the excellent video below from Peter Murray.
