8B+ FA by Dave Graham

Dave Graham has put up yet a new 8B+, Monkey Business in Rocklands. "Adding sick new rig at the crazy cave, amazing roof problem, somehow abandoned and dormant until we recently unveiled it from the dirt and the ashes! A pure horizontal one, this thing starts on jugs, leads to a heinous crux heel toe cam, then is followed by an intricate system of hand moves until the impending foot cut, which I assure you, feels like crazy shit. Classic boulder, syked to be adding something new. Could be easier, but I doubt it." David is the one in the world who has put up most hard core boulders all around the globe. Now he is on his way to Norway for The Boulder battle.
