Two 8B+ FA:s by Hukkataival

With not so much left to repeat, Nalle Hukkataival has been focusing on developing new areas and making FA:s in Rocklands this season. Quite unsurprisingly this has resulted in some high quality first ascents.

Get railed: A stunning first ascent right at Roadside! We worked this boulder for a couple days with Daniel and returned to finish the job. As we were done warming up and put the pads down, heavy storm clouds rolled in engulfing us in a thick layer of mist with strong winds pumping through. We knew there was no time to waste and I got through the crux on my second attempt of the day. Slightly hesitantly I went for the highball crux and stuck it. The wind was intense and cold and made my hands numb out for the exposed ending. Just as I topped out I felt the first rain drops falling. Such a rad line with big moves on bulletproof rails!

Rule of thumb: See video clip below
