8C+ first ascent in Ticino: Yannick Flohé boulders Return of the Dreamtime

German professional climber Yannick Flohé opens a new difficult line on the Dreamtime block in Cresciano. The first ascent called Return of the Dreamtime rated Flohé with 8C +.

Dreamtime is probably the most famous boulder in the world. The Swiss bouldering pioneer Fred Nicole opened in 2000 on the impressive block above the Ticino village Cresciano the first 8C boulder in the world. Today the block counts several famous lines such as Story of two worlds (8C) , The Dagger (8B/+) or the still rarely repeated line REM.

On January 31.01.2023, XNUMX, Dreamtime gained another pearl. Yannick Flohe started in the legendary Dreamtime line, then moved away to the edge on the right after the dynamic move.

«Return of the Dreamtime feels easy for 8C+, but compared to Dreamtime it's a different level. That's why I think my proposal fits."
