Having finally developed an eye for the quality rock formations of rural Swaziland, world-renowned boulderers Jimmy Webb and Nalle Hukkataival set to work doing what they do best; climbing. Between them they establish numerous problems on the strange, bulb-like boulders that thrust upwards from the Swazi countryside. The rounded, fissured granite of which the boulders are comprised lends itself to technical, slopey climbing; a style that reminds Nalle of the French bouldering area Fontainebleau. Wanting to give the area a problem worthy of the bouldering Mecca it so resembles, Nalle sets to work on 'Project X' a thin, dynamic line that he eventually climbs at the grade of 8B/V13.
