Fresh off a summer which saw him flash an absurd number of hard boulders in South Africa and win the inaugural Psicobloc Masters Series event, Jimmy Webb has done the FA of The Wheel Of Wolvo, a likely V15 at Lincoln Lake, Mt. Evans, CO. He comments on his 8a scorecard:
Yet another wheel of colorado! Amazing boulder problem we’ve always looked at but just thought it to be too hard. The break down is sick. A 10 move 8B+ into a 15 move 8a/+. A pumpy one for sure and suited my style/height so perfectly.
With Daniel Woods’ other “Wheel” problem The Wheel Of Chaos (V14) having seen repeats from Matty Hong, Nalle Hukkataival, Dave Graham and Paul Robinson in just a couple of weeks, look for Webb’s “Wheel” to be the new problem of the week for the Boulder elite.
