New 8B+ by O'Conor 
 

Si O'Conor has given Scotland yet another 8B+, Atlantic bridge at Port Nis. "I managed to extend the classic Atlantic Bridge problem originally climbed 4 years back at v9 in the end, which now starts from the originally planned deep cave sitter. From the roof nicks at the back it's easily as hard as Trace Element -rh-. This line is one of the most, unsung, un-hyped, 3 star problems of the most northerly bouldering in the Western Isles. From crouch & doing the nose it's v9. from the sloper roof crack start it's v11 [recently repeated by Finn]...Now my original idea is complete.. taking the line from start to finish in 9 or 10 moves. It would have been climbed sooner but like many lines that seem obvious & catch the eye...they are always harder to do than to dream..."
