Nice photo and interesting to see the young climbers climbing with the more established climbers. Great effort.

Anyone know how long it took them to do?

Apparently, Nalle sent the boulder problem on his third day.

Thanks. Sounds like he could have done it on his second day:

Well into the session, precisely one minute before sundown I managed to catch a nice breeze and found myself at the mantle! However I looked down and my spotters were nowhere to be found. With no one spotting, it was unsafe to do the last move and I had to drop down. I was gutted having just climbed a really hard, highly friction dependent climb. And I never made it back to the top again that day.

...and Shawn took 3 days too.
