Hot on the heels of Guillaume Glairon Mondet, Nalle Hukkataival has made a very quick repeat of Mandala sds, 8B/+, at the Buttermilks, Bishop, needing only one day for the ascent.
Prior to going to Bishop, he had spent a few months back home in Finland for a change. The extensive plastic pulling doesn't seem to have made him any weaker...
Whether he is now planning to get on Paul Robinson's Lucid dreaming, 8C+, I don't know, but it would sure be interesting to see how he would fare on it.
