Ned Feehally flashes Trust Issues, 8B+ | V14

The sendage in Rocklands continues. British climber Ned Feehally has pulled off an impressive flash of Trust Issues, a problem graded 8B+ | V14, opened by Nalle Hukkataival two weeks ago. Only 5 climbers have managed to flash a problem that hard.

On Trust Issues: “It’s not very often you find a problem that suits you so well – heel hooks and huge lock offs on sloping holds. It’s a total stunner of a line too.

Feehally wrote on Instagram that flashing 8B has been a goal of his for a while. And it looks like he achieved it for good: A while ago I set myself the challenge to flash 8b. A few times I’ve been painfully close, but always managed to drop the ball when success seemed all but inevitable. While I still haven’t flashed an 8b, I did flash this 8b+ instead…

So far only Daniel Woods, Adam Ondra, Jimmy Webb, Liam Vance and, now, Ned Feehally have managed to flash a problem graded 8B+ | V14.

Trust Issues is one of the multiple problems that Nalle Hukkataival has been opening in Rocklands over the last weeks. The Finn is doing first ascents left and right, and they all look super cool.

Two days ago, Feehally also climbed Fred Nicole’s Amandla. A superclassic and fingery 8B+ | V14, with tiny tiny crimps.

On Amandla: “This has to be one of the most classic hard problems in the world. It has some really tiny holds. So tiny that I thought I’d never be able to hold them. Sometimes it’s nice to be wrong.

Ned Feehally is one of the most renowned climbers in the UK. On rock he has climbed a couple of 8C’s | V15’s (The Big Island and Jour de Chasse) and, on plastic, he represented the UK in the World Cup circuit for many years; his best result was 5th in the 2012 Innsbruck Bouldering World Cup. Feehally is also the co-owner of Beastmaker, a famous fingerboard company.
