8B+ by Petr Resch

Petr Resch (the Organizer of this year's Petrohrad PADani Boulderfestival) has done an 8B+ at Petrohrad, called S trny v kù?i hledám krásu rù?í. I'm sure you all know very well what it means (it's Czech after all), but here's a translation from the man himself: "... The meaning of the name quite fits the character of the boulder: "With thorns in my skin, I'm looking for the beauty of the roses".
Rounded, small holds with sharp edged crystals in it. It's a short traverse. The first 5 moves are -- maybe -- 7C/7C+, after that, there's "nothing" to hold on, except an extremly small edge and one move further right. I spent 10 till 12 days on the boulder, max. 1 hour each. It's one of the competition boulders for this year's festival. Nobody but Rostislav ?tefánek and me has tried it yet ..."
