The Devil Wears Prana

Marijus Šmigelskis has established a new problem at the Graffitti Boulders in Echo Valley at Topside after trying the line on previous visits (while working "Captain Graffitti"). "The Devil Wears Prana" 7B is and eliminate jump that is bound not to become a classic and may be easier if you use the razor sharp holds in a crack which runs alongside the problem (as this may eliminate the crux dyno). A few days later Marijus made the 4th ascent of "The Untitled Symphony of Self-Destruction" 7C+ at Redhill.

Willis in Swinburne

Donovan Willis repeated "What Wanda Wanted" 7C at Swinburne in the Free State. The problem traverses the Long Tonk boulder via long moves between fairly good holds which then lead to a blank section on poor crimps and small huecos.
