Video: Nalle Hukkataival on a training course in Squamish

Nalle Hukkataival visited the Canadian bouldering area Squamish in September and - as so often - some hard boulders were ticking. Among other things, he succeeded in the second ascent of the Boulder Singularity (8b + / c). A decade after Tim Clifford's first ascent.

Regarding the difficulty of Singularity, Nalle says "Really extra tough to comment on the difficulty. The fact that it's fended off the efforts of a list of 8b + climbers for over a decade must mean something. Does that suggest 8c? Or make it a 8b + that's just really hard to do? Is there a difference between those two? " Finally, the degree does not play such a big role, we still like watching Nalle bouldering.
