Radja 8B (+) by Daniel Woods

EDITORIAL

4 November 2022

"First 8B+ (v14) in the world by Fred Nicole. The crux involves a physical move off of a terrible left-hand undercling to a small right-hand incut crimp. Daniel did it the original way Fred did. There is a new way of starting the line which makes it easier and another way to do the crux which also makes it easier (once you get the right-hand shoulder you cross over with the left hand to match it and grab a right-hand crimp above. This makes getting the left-hand undercling easier). This new way is more 8B (v13). Daniel wanted to do what Fred did. The line is definitely contrived but history is history."
