Nalle Hukataival has continued his tear by putting up one of the best problems in Colorado, Sunseeker 8B. While many people have spent time developing Area B over the last few years, this project went strangely neglected. I have been very busy lately but was hoping if I posted pictures someone would head up there and get it done. Nalle writes “Amazing problem! One of the best in CO”. I agree. Time and again, the best climbers spend their time putting up the best problems and in a matter of a few days Nalle has climbed one equal to his ability. Very well done.

    Equal to his ability? That may be underestimating Mr. Hukkataival – he only gave it a rating of v13 – considering his whomping of Jade.

    I guess what I meant to say is that Nalle is an amazing climber, one of the best in the world, and this problem could be described in the same way.

    Cam had done the stand start last year with the landing in a much worse condition than its present state. Not sure if he gave it a name. Andre saw him do it and speaks very highly of his effort and willingness to commit over a horrendous landing.

    I called the stand start “Conspicuous Consumption”.

    The sit is the proud line though. I’m glad to see that it went. Nice effort on Nalle’s part.
