Another Topside testpiece

Topside has received another likely candidate for the Cape's hardest problem. Marijus Šmigelskis climbed the sit start to an existing 7B called "Flubber" at The Cinema to create "Black Hawk Down" 8A+. Marijus thought the line might potentially be harder than "Koeberg"at Bonnydoon (currently considered to be the hardest problem in Cape Town), but he thinks it didn't quite feel 8B. Marijus spent a week's worth of sessions working the line until succeeding one evening in terrible wet conditions.
