Who was in Cresciano last weekend, did not miss the recent ascent of the most famous boulder in the world: Jernej Kruder climbed Dreamtime (XNUMXc).
The ascent of Dreamtime by the Slovene Jernej Kruder was quickly spread around the bouldering area of Cresciano last Saturday. After numerous attempts over several sessions Jernej could draw a line under the Fred Nicole boulder.
"I would not call Dreamtime a nemesis project," says Jernej to LACRUX shortly after his ascent. "But the line has demanded a lot of patience," he continues. Salvation and joy were written in his face.
Dreamtime - the world's first 8c boulder
Dreamtime was first climbed by the climbing legend Fred Nicole in October XNUMX and is considered the world's first XNUMXc boulder. Since then, the line has brought countless top climbers to Ticino. The most recent ascents we know go to the account of Samuel Ometz, David Firnenburg, Jimmy Webb and Elias Iagnemma.
