Sorry for cutting the first move of the send. I started climbing too fast. This rather long boulder shares the same start with "Half Life", but finishes in a boulder called "Nightcrawler" (around 8B). With the added moves I thought its around 8B+/C, but hard to give it a boulder grade as it has got more than 20 moves. Thank you for the support Bas & Alise. And thanks for holding the second iPhone :-)
Half Life was first climbed by Felix Knaub a while back and it didn't get a repeat for a long time. After getting more into bouldering this spring I could do the second ascent of it a few months ago. Felix proposed 8C back then, and I think the way he climbed it was for sure hard 8C. After finding slightly different beta and by using a kneepad it for sure made it a bit easier. Might still be 8C though. Hard to say, as its a rather long boulder problem with about 25 moves.
For BD Ambassador Kaddi Lehmann, climbing a V15 boulder problem all started with fixing the gears on her old mountain bike. But those accumulated miles she pedaled uphill to Kryptos—an aesthetic limestone seam in the Swiss Jura—pale in comparison to the internal journey she endured to reach the top of that boulder. On that intrepid internal voyage, Lehmann discovered that success didn’t hinge on physical power, but on motivation, belief, and happiness.
