Finnish climber Nalle Hukkataival has climbed his longest and hardest boulder to date, the infamous Lappnor Project, calling it Burden of Dreams and grading it V17 | 9A, which would make it the hardest problem ever climbed.
German powerhouse Jan Hojer and Slovenian star Jernej Kruder are in Mallorca, Spain, working on the most famous deep water soloing (AKA psicobloc) line ever: Chris Sharma’s Es Pontas. Opened by Sharma in 2006, the route remains unrepeated and it is considered one of the hardest on the planet.
American boulderer Isabelle Faus has repeated Daniel Wood’s The Wheel of Chaos. This is Faus’ second ascent of a problem graded V14 | 8B+, after her repetition of Amandla in Rocklands. With this ascent, Faus confirms her position at the forefront of female bouldering, along with Alex Puccio and Ashima Shiraishi.
Here it is! This monster took a while to edit but it is finally ready for public consumption. The route setters did a great job and prepared very dynamic problems, it was hard to decide which moves to include and which to left out, but hopefully the video will make them justice.
