Dave Graham repeats Amandla at Rocklands
Dave Graham has repeated Amandla 8b+, the boulder problem established by Fred Nicole at Rocklands in South Africa.
After Nalle Hukkataival and Oliphants Dawn, American climber Dave Graham now checks in with a quick repeat of Amandla, another boulder problem first ascended by Fred Nicole at Rocklands in South Africa. Originally graded 8C, after the Swissman's 2005 ascent a crimp broke and became slightly larger and the grade is now recognised as being 8B+.
Graham failed on his flash attempt, worked the moves quickly to find his own beta, rested for 45 minutes and then sent it straight off stating "It was a magical moment, a boulder I had waited years to try, and a successful execution, no punting was involved."
A video of the ascent can be found on Graham's Island website.
