Ned Feehally flashes 8B+ boulder in Rocklands

di

British climber Ned Feehally has flashed Trust Issues, an 8B+ boulder problem at Rocklands in South Africa. This is one of the hardest flash ascents to date.

Beyond the British borders one doesn’t tend to hear much about Ned Feehally, but the Sheffield-based climber is certainly a silent force to be reckoned with. In the past the three-times British bouldering champion has impressed with rare repeats of coveted testpieces such as Ron Fawcett’s Careless Torque at Stanage, Ben Moon’s Voyager at at Burbage North and Jerry Moffatt’s The Ace and he has even flashed up to 8A+. Now though he’s gone not one, but a staggering two steps further by flashing an 8B+.

Feehally climbed flawlessly up Trust Issues at Rocklands in South Africa, a "stunning line" according to the Brit first ascended by Nalle Hukkataival past a series of "heel hooks and huge lock offs on sloping holds." Spurred on by the likes of Alexander Megos, Dave Graham and Shauna Coxsey, Feehally’s ascent now ranks as one of the hardest flashes of all times. Others who have flashed an 8B+ boulder problem are Daniel Woods, who flashed Entlinge in Switzerland’s Murgtal in 2011, Adam Ondra, who flashed Jade in the Rocky Mountain National Park in 2015, and Jimmy Webb who flashed The Globalist in Finland in 2016.
