Tyler Landman Repeats the USA´s Hardest Boulder Problem.

by Mick Ryan June 19th, 2007, the US climber Daniel Woods established what is considered by some to be the hardest boulder problem in the USA, Jade, which has been given V15 or Font 8c. This was the Green 45 project in Upper Chaos Canyon, in Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP) in Colorado. You can watch Woods on Jade, thinking negatively to achieve a positive outcome, here NowTyler Landman, 16, who was brought up in the UK but has American parents, and has been climbing since he was 5, (see profile) has repeated Jade. Another Landman cutting edge ascent to add to the likes of his repeats of Dreamtime Font 8b+/V14, Freaks of Industry Font 8b+/V14, The Ace Font 8b/V13, Voyager Font 8b/V13 and Coeur de Leon Font 8b+/V14. Tyler is avoiding the summer heat in North America by bouldering at high altitude areas like Squamish, Canada and Rocky Mountain National Park in Colorado. He reports at the Moonblog of his first V12 flash at Squamish, Vince Pinch, “Basically one really powerful move off two poor pinches to a flat slope. Holding the swing and turning a bulge, ” and made attempts at Tim Clifford´s new problem, The Singularity. “An amazing line on perfect rock, very hard too.” Earlier this year, Landman repeated another Wood´s V15 in the RMNP, Ode to the Modern Man, which Landman thought to be more like, V14/15.
