Vadim Timonov is currently in the Rocklands in South Africa. Due to the corona, the longing destination of many boulderers was less visited, so that the „Finnish Line“ had to wait almost a year and a half for the next ascent. The „Finnish Line“ is one of the most beautiful and difficult boulders in the Rocklands. Vadim had been trying the boulder for over two years, usually with rope. This year it worked in his the first session.

The boulder was discovered and first ascented in 2017 by the Finn Nalle Hukkataival. At the time, Nalle suggested 8C/+ as a grade. Since then, the boulder has quickly been climbed several times and mostly graded 8c.
