In Progress | Brutal Pocket-Pulling Projects From New Zealand

This short video shows two New Zealand climbers, James Field Mitchell and Alexander Noir fighting to climb their local projects. 'Louder' (featured first) is a classic for the grade, (28/7c+), and a stout challenge that has seen Alex hard at work for many months. 'Shining Bright Despite the Plight' (32/8b+) is one of the hardest lines in the region and has been a labour of love for James who has been attempting the line for years. Originally called 'Shinning Bright' and graded 31/8b James was close to claiming his ascent before a large rest hold broke off. A failed attempt at gluing it back on and countless days of training later he's once again painfully close!
