James Webb climbs The Healing, one of his absolute best at Rocklands

di

American climber Jimmy Webb has made the first ascent of The Healing at Rocklands, describing the 8B+ boulder problem as 'one of the absolute best lines I’ve ever touched.'

When one of the world’s best boulderers says he’s just made the the first ascent of one of the best lines he’s ever touched, it’s worth taking stock. The man who’s stated this is James Webb who got his the Rocklands season to a cracking start with The Healing, 45° line he had envisioned 4 years ago "with just enough holds to climb it." The problem requires V14 (8B+) power as well as strong nerves since it’s 25 feet high.
