During the last days of her stay in Switzerland, Brooke Raboutou managed two difficult boulders: Iur (8b +) and Heritage (8b).
At the beginning of January, the American Brooke Raboutou started her trip to Ticino and quickly became quite fascinated by the region and its granite boulders.
Some people utter such words when they are simply relaxing and sipping a drink on a lounger. Not however Brooke Raboutou. A few days after her arrival, she managed to climb the difficult boulder La Proue (8b). Then last week, at the end of her trip, the Olympian managed two boulders in the upper eighth French degree: lur (8b +) and Heritage (8b).
