Movie about the Red Rocks Trip by Nils Favre

A few weeks ago Nils Favre was still in the Red Rocks, knocking down rows of hard boulders - including the line that Nalle Hukkataival first started Kintsugi (8c).

The guys from flatholds accompanied Nils Favre and Niccolo Ceria on their trip and recorded the most important inspections in the form of a film. The trailer is online as of today. The full film should follow soon.

Nils comment on the ascent of Kintsugi:

Already back in Europe and really far from this master piece of rock! Climb this boulder, “Kintsugi, V15 !?” was an absolute moment of joy.

I spent 3 days on it trying several betas and finally found a new way which replace 3mouvs by a really big one. Last day of trip and be alone were two factors which put my mind in a perfect focus to be able to climb at my best. It's probably the only boulder of this trip which I didn't make a single mistake in my climbing, this boulder changed my vision of bouldering. After the climb I needed to take back five crash pads, rope, camera and climbing gear, It means 4 times the one hour walking in a day. I love this way of climbing, it makes each boulder unique with a big story behind.

About the boulder: Nalle Hukkataival did the FA and it was only repeated by Jimmy Webb, I'm happy to put my name on the 3rd ascent because this line will stay on the high ranking of the best climb I've done. Video should be release by flathold soon or directly on my Vimeo account. Have the look, mouvs are just perfect with a jump start which is the best start possible for a boulder on my opinion. I have a big split on my finger and a big smile on my face.
