The Globalist, 8B/+ Flash by Jimmy Webb

Jimmy Webb has added another impressive flash to his resume by repeating The Globalist first-try. Located near Helsinki, The Globalist was opened in 2009 by Nalle Hukkataival, who proposed the 8B+ | V14 grade. Since then some repeaters have suggested the downgrade to 8B | V13. In any case, a very hard problem and one of the hardest flashes ever.
