Shawn Raboutou nabbed the third ascent of Livin’ Large (V16), in Rocklands, South Africa, in October, 2019. At 26 feet tall, the boulder is one of the hardest highballs in the world. It was originally sent by Nalle Hukatival in 2009, and then Jimmy Webb, in 2015.
Livin’ Large isn’t a first of the grade for Raboutou. He’s also put down Creature from the Black Lagoon (V16) and Off the Wagon Sit (V16, FA).
