Steven Roth & Ethan Pringle Go Big

Alex Honnold’s boulder problem free solo Too Big To Flail, which was featured in 2012’s Reel Rock 7, has seen a lot of action of late.  First up was Lonnie Kauk who repeated the problem late last year, and then this past weekend Ethan Pringle and Stephen stepped and repeated the line as reported in this post by DPM:

Roth, a relatively unknown Berkeley college student who works at Touchstone Climbing, went first and, utilizing slightly different beta than Pringle, steadily cruised the line and was standing on top in disbelief in minutes. His movement was confident and precise, just like his prior burns on top rope, and his execution was flawless.
