Real Rock-climbing on plastic | Sunday Sends

Although most of us enjoy a good triple dyno and other circus tricks that we often see in modern competition bouldering, some of us have a special place in our hearts for old-school, crimpy, rock-like problems. This week we gonna see Mina Markovic climbing one of those gems from Munich 2013.

Not much of dyno, but still a huge swing! | Sunday Sends
