Roman Alexander Hoffman FA’s Thermonuclear Fusion (8C/9a+)

Roman Alexander Hoffman sent Thermonuclear Fusion (9a+) in wedderburn in 2022. ”I often boulder by myself maybe 70% of the time. Only my wife & one good friend knew about the send of "Thermonuclear Fusion" until I published it last week.”

Can you tell us more about the boulder/route and the process behind it?
The total length of the climb is approximately 20-25 metres of climbing at 44+ moves (hands only). The total number of sessions I would estimate with trying all the variants & links, to the final hard lines would be around once a week for 6 months over 3-4 years totalling around 60-80 sessions.

Using a chalk bag is very awkward in roofs and part of the climbing is also close to the ground. I hung chalk balls in the roof at both rests which is also the only place you can freely chalk up, this worked much better.
