In this video, Dave MacLeod repeats Bernd Zangerl's classic New Base Line at Magic Wood in the Averstal, Switzerland.
Originally given 8C, this problem is more or less considered as a benchmark 8B+, which shouldn't be confused with a British benchmark 8B+ as that, quite obviously, would be considerably harder.
It would certainly be very interesting to see some world class boulderers giving Britain's most difficult problems some serious effort!
Thanks to Polished Project for the video.
