Paul Robinson climbs The Big Short

Paul Robinson has made the FA of The Big Short, ~8B+, at Rocklands, South Africa. This is the project similar in Style to Sky but with smaller holds and bigger moves, that I wrote about the other day.

Alex Kahn, Paul's girlfriend, writes on 27 crags: The problem begins low under a roof and climbs out perfect orange sandstone through long spans and desperate heel hooks. Paul notes on the climb that, “The problem's most memorable move is a large throw from under the roof to a flat edge above the roof that lends itself to a massive swing that is quite difficult to hold.” Once the edge is reached the problem ends with about 10 more feet of climbing up a beautiful face with a difficulty of around 7B+.
