New trad 8c+ in Finland
May 22, 2019, 09:12:48 am
Tomi Nytorp has just put up the hardest crack in Finland, Privatvägen (Private street), 8c+.

For those who doesn't know Tomi Nytorp, he is an absolute legend in Scandinavia. Won a couple of nordic championships 15 years ago, and is still going strong, especially on the boulders – but he has also done a few 9a's abroad, like The Essential in Frankenjura and Escalatamasters in Perles, and some 8c+s like La Cabane au Canada and Speed in Switzerland.

Privatvägen has been a well known project for a long time, as it is the only line of weakness on an otherwise blank wall. Tomi Nytorp has tried the route a bit every year since 1999-2000 when he moved done to southern Finland.

Looks amazing, the single line on the cliff. Google translate is particularly poetic with the original but he appears to be tying himself in knots to not give it 9a.
