Jimmy Webb has made the second ascent of Nalle Hukkataival's Kintsugi, ~8C, in the Mud Springs Canyon at Red Rock, Nevada. Nalle made the first ascent almost two years ago, in January 2015.

Since then, Jimmy has also visited Yosemite where he repeated Chris Sharma's Dominated (Dominator assis), ~8B, and Carlo Traversi's Cold Snap, ~8A+, which he found hard(!) for the grade. Very unusual when it comes to Jimmy.

The fingers he injured when he managed to get them caught in the rope during a rope swing are now almost back to full strength again. Strong enough to climb ~8C anyway...

And he crushed Dominated in Yosemite a couple days later! Not bad considering he says he is "still recovering"... when I say not bad, my mind is utterly blown.

Yeah that's a remarkably quick recovery to full (or 8c at least) strength. It's only a month ago that he was struggling in the Legends Only comp and couldn't even try one of the problems because of his fingers.
