Naomi Guy reports that, during a trip to Hueco Tanks, Brit comp winner Claire Murphy climbed 'Flying Marcel' (V10/Font 7c+). This is the first boulder problem of this grade to be climbed by a British woman. Flying Marcel is "a long crimp fest with a dynamic crux at the top." Murphy also climbed numerous other V9s and V8s on her 3 month tour.
Other bouldering news from Stateside is that legend in his own down time, Chris Sharma has done the coveted sit down to Moffat's Camp 4 testpiece, Dominator. Whilst Moffat thanks Roget's Thesaurus for the original name, Sharma feels the extra couple of moves warrant 'Dominated'.
