8B FA and another 8A+ flash by Nalle

The star of Pure, Nalle Hukkataival, just keeps delivering at Hueco Tanks. Lately he's made the first ever flash ascent of The Full Monty, 8A+, and, in the same style, also Barefoot on sacred ground, making it the 4th 8A+ flash of this trip. He's also repeated Coeur de Leon, 8B, which he found hard for the grade and made the FA of The Machinist, a 25 move 8B at the East spur, the 2nd ascent of which was quickly done by Jon Cardwell. And yeah, he did a few other 8A+'s and 8A's too.... Photo showing Nalle on the FA of The Machinist.
