2nd ascent Nalle Hukkataival, 2008-03-15, then Martin Keller, Daniel Woods, Michele Caminati.

Adam Ondra flash, "the first flash of a confirmed 8b+ ever" ?


" Well, 8B+ flash sounds amazing but I can't put as 8B+, it was all too simple compared to The Dagger or La Proue. I just gave it go without expecting anything and suddenly I was on the top and did not find it very hard. But I do not say it can't be 8B+, it might have been pretty much my style or I don't know... To flash The Vice was much more difficult for me. see Martin's comment as well". Adam Ondra


Martin Keller's comment:
"grading shit: shark hunt is supposed 2 be 8A by some CRIMPY BOYS but 4 me shaky is harder than confessions - so confessions must be 7C - and as the riverbed is easier then confessions the riverbed must be 7B!!! IF you are gonna pretent to be some humble brave whatever - beat least consistent - what will show to u show FUCKED up this grading shit is -it will never work like it is supposed to - its 4 NERDS brave HUMBLERS and POINT hunters ;)"


"I had not thought at all I could flash. It looked so impossible and also when I saw Daniel Woods trying it last year it looked really hard. In every move while climbing I was surprised that I was still on the rock and suddenly I was in the upper and easy part. And I started to cheer."

Confessions is described by Michele Caminati as "harder than many 8bs but definitely easier than other 8b+s I've done".

Giuliano Cameroni: strong fingers, a kind mother, 16 years old ...

... and a future of hard boulders and (short) routes !

 

 

 

 

35 minutes.

This is the driving distance between Giuliano's house and the closiest boulders.

Not so bad.

The only problem is that when you are 16 years old, You can't drive the car.

No worries, if you have a kind mother, problem is solved  :-)

She drives him to the rocks, so he can climb something like this, then, after bouldering, he takes the train to come back home.

 

Ciao Giuliano,

how are you so strong ?! How much do you train ?

CIAO :-)

I CLIMB ON BOULDERS ABOUT 4 TIMES A WEEK, ON PLASTIC NOT SO MUCH, WHEN IT RAINS

 

Where do you climb usually ?

I CLIMB IN TICINO, MAGIC WOOD, SUSTEN, ... SOMETIMES IN FONT AND DURING THE HOLIDAYS OUT OF EUROPE TOO.

 

Who are your bouldering friends ?

I CLIMB WITH FRIENDS FROM TICINO AND WALLIS. SOMETIMES WITH MY FATHER AND MY BROTHER.
