First female to climb V15

(Kommentare: 0)


Big news! 14 year old Ashima Shiraishi has just become the first female and the youngest person ever to climb V15, with the second ascent of Dai Koyamada's spectacular 25 move roof problem, Horizon, in Hiei, Japan.

After working the problem in December, Ashima returned during her spring break from school, and sent it today on her third day on. Our crew was there to capture her historic achievement for this fall's #REELROCK11 Film Tour.

I send the movie Toru Nakajima in Colorado 2015.
He made great achievement in this trip.
The highlight is Paint it Black V15 which is one of the hardest problem in the world.
And there are not only Paint it Black but also some hard problems in Colorado.

First 9a Sport Route in Bleau

(Kommentare: 0)

On today's show we check in with French Boulderer Alban Levier, who has recently established himself as the nations number 1 boulderer on the competition scene, and if this recent route is anything to go by, he's not that far off that mark on rock as well. Alban has established what he claims to be the first 9a sport route in the bouldering mecca of Fontainebleau. It is a first ascent combining boulder problems in the Orsay Roof, and is made up of more than 30 moves...BRUTAL!

Polish climber and UK resident Dawid Skoczylas hasrepeated Mike Adams' 8C SerenataonImpossible Roof, Roche Abbey, South Yorkshire. Dawid put substantial time andeffort into the problem and joins a fairly small list of 'honorary' Brits to climb 8C.

Serenataclimbs the low start intoSerenityand ends in Ned Feehally'sSerenadeextension, therefore creating a link of an~8B+ into ~7C+, to produce one of the UKC's hardest problems, first climbed in 2015.

Fitting in attempts between a full-time job and looking after his four children, Dawid's ascent is highly impressive. He told UKC:

"I am very pleased and surprised I did it.Relieved that a couple of years of effort (including time spent on Serenity and Serendipity) materialised in the ascent. Also relieved that I didn't get injured in the process! Brilliant line which you can dropon almost every move."
