Aidan Roberts flashes Momentum (8B+)

Aidan Roberts has flashed Momentum (8B+) in Valle Bavona, which was put up by Nalle Hukkataival in 2012 as an 8C. On Insta he comments, "Between intermittent rain showers and wavering motivation at the idea of a soggy top-out slab, a weather window opened and I was able to top out on my flash attempt, a great feeling!"

Last autumn Roberts made the second ascent of Alphane (9A) and including also several 8C+, he is a contender for having the most impressive tick list out there.
