8B+ FA by Carlo Traversi

Carlo Traversi has opened The Penrose Step 8B+ in Leavenworth. "The longstanding Ladder Project. A stunning line on a huge blank face. One of the most perfect, pure lines I've ever seen. Barely squeaked out a send today. Such tricky, subtle moves." In the 8a ranking game, Carlo who has had an amazing continuous progress during the last ten years, are now #2.
