The Russian Vadim Timonov has been in Switzerland for a little over a week now. Within a very short time he climbed numerous hard Ticino classics - and shows some of the ascents in a video
A year ago it was the bouldering area Magic Wood in which Vadim Timonov climbed thirteen boulders in the eighth degree of the French bouldering scale FB within 15 days. His ticklist after his current stay in Switzerland could look similar.
Already after a week, he announces the ascent of numerous classics. The sensational thing about the whole story: For the three 8b's and the downgraded boulder Amber , now 3a+, he never needed more than three attempts. Here is the list.
- Amber 8a + (flash)
- General Disarray 8b (second attempt)
- Vecchio leone 8b (third attempt)
- Off the wagon 8b + (second attempt)
- Dreamtime (8c)
- The Kingdom (8c)
- Arzak 8b + (second attempt)
- Entlinge (8b)
- Entwash 8a (flash)
