8B+ by Sharik Walter in Australia

australianbouldering.com reports “Sharik Walker has finally linked the fist half of the Hollow Mountain Cave. Starting at X-treme Cool V9 and finishing up Sleepy Hollow V12 to create Under Siege. The 34 move problem took 12 days of work and lots of days falling off on the last few moves. Not unlike Matt Wrigley and his Pretty Hate Machine V14 Sharik is not overly keen to grade the problem but for most there can be little doubt that it is also V14.” 8a.nu has earlier esimated that there exist some 35 boulders 8B+ and harder in the world.
