BD Athlete Nalle Hukkatiaval is driven by first ascents. For him, the moment of actually climbing a boulder problem is secondary—a mere 10%—compared to the hard work of actually unearthing the line.
More than 50 days of effort, hundreds of miles of hiking, hundreds of hours spent at this boulder, thousands of tries, and it was all over in a minute. Ethan Pringle hadd finally had the experience he was looking for.
A relatively recent first free ascent by Tom Moulin, this roof crack was a long-standing project for decades, thwarting attempts by some legendary crack climbers, perhaps most notably those of Hidetaka Suzuki in the 1980s.
Here's a super short little diddy about a very cool feature in Red Rocks, NV. The Great Red Roof (5.13b?) climbs out a stunning crack through a perfectly horizontal roof, but barely has any jams.
The crew has arrived in Las Vegas and they're ready to gamble (with the hot weather), gorge out (on endless buffets) and climb (just climb). They're here for the classic climbing routes and boulders among the Red Rock cliffs.
Nalle Hukkataival has had a pretty up and down start to 2015. It didn't begin well when he sliced open his calf in a bouldering fall. However, he's already back in action, and how! He's made the first ascent of a plum line in Red Rocks, Nevada, called it "Kintsugi" and graded it 8C.
Climber's Paul Robinson and Heather Robinson (no relation) enjoy the beauty and diversity of the landscape just outside of Las Vegas. From the sandstone boulders of the Red Rock area to the alpine setting and limestone cliffs of Mount Charleston, there's something for everyone. Good to note; if you don't venture towards the bright lights of Vegas, you may even stay out of trouble.
Carlo Traversi hatten wir ja schon ein paar mal hier bei unseren Videos. Auch diesmal gelingt ihm ein nettes Boulderproblem im Grad V13, das im US-amerikanischen Red Rock Canyon in Nevada angesiedelt ist.
