As first mentioned on B3Bouldering, Dave Graham has opened a new problem at Guanella Pass west of Denver, CO that could be as hard as V15. Graham called the problem The Ice Knife and had this to say about it on his 8a scorecard:
A majestic prow, jutting out of the forest on a northeast facing slope. A very technical compression climb, and extra conditony. Took me eleven days over two seasons, and it was a huge relief to final climb it. Difficult to grade, but one of the more challenging problems I have tried in a very long time, so we will see.
You can see some pictures Cameron Maier shot of Graham working the problem earlier this year by clicking here or here.
Graham also updated his scorecard with some of the problems he did on his recent journey to Australia. Among the ascents registered include repeats of Nalle Hukkataival’s new problems Occam’s Razor (V14) and Cherry Picking (V13) and the FA of On The Beach (V13).
