New V12 in Rhode Island

Matt Giossi has sent a hard new line at the Beach Pond bouldering area in southern Rhode Island.  The steep line follows a line of slopey crimps and pinches to a big dyno and finishes up the classic Manhandled.  Matt has named the problem Work of Man and has proposed a V12 rating.  Matt had this to say after the send:

"I looked at this thing maybe two years ago said it was impossible. . . looked at it in the fall... said it was impossible . two weeks ago with the... help of a good friend found out that secret beta and worked my ass off to get the FA of one of the most amazing lines in new england . this was hardest thing to date i have ever climbed, physically and mentally!"

 Height Films was on hand to capture the send and will be putting out a video soon...
