8B+ FA by Nalle

Nalle Hukkataival has, after four sessions of work, done the FA of The Globalist, 8B+, near his home in Helsinki, Finland. "The line reminds me of The Island in Fontainebleau, because it has a similar sloper in the crux section, but for the opposite hand. It's not the tallest line but it has around 13 moves. It's all about compression. The whole way you are squeezing the feature on really bad slopers and a tiny crimp." Full story on Nalle's blog.
