Bouldering News

by Mick Ryan Tyler Landman Tyler Landman has repeated Dreamtime at Cresciano, Switzerland. This was first climbed by Fred Nicole in 2000 and was the first boulder problem to get the grade of V15/Font 8c. Since then it has been reported as having holds improved. Landman thought Font V14/8b+ to be more on the mark. Landman has quite a resumé (he is moving to the USA!) of hard bouldering ascents including the Ace V13/Font 8b at the Stanage Plantation, the Mandala Font V12/Font 8a+ in Bishop, California and Nuthin But Sunshine Font V13/14..Font8b/+ at Rocky Mountain State Park in Colorado. In the UK Andy Earl made the third ascent of Ben Moon´s Cypher V13/Font 8b at Slipstones in North Yorkshire.In the Lakes Adam Hocking added a left-hand finish to Grand Opera on the Bowderstoneand has christened it Final Curtain – V11/Font 8a On Carrock Fell in the Lakes Greg Chapman had a sylvan moment on the Kits boulder linking several problems to give a new V10/Font 7c+ poetically called Railblazer Lakes Blocc, UKBouldering and Planet Fear
