Paul Robinson makes the FA of "The Big Short"

Published about 4 years ago by Alexandra Kahn.

Two days ago Paul Robinson made the first ascent of a new line in Rocklands far back in the 8 Day Rain sector. He is naming the boulder problem, “The Big Short” and attaching it the grade of 8B+. 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+.
