LACRUX takes a brief, belated look back at the past year and presents you with videos of groundbreaking projects, scary-sweaty inspections and four-legged bouldering.
1. Is this the first 9c in the world?
Adam Ondra climbed numerous hard routes in Flatanger. At least one route is still pending. Will it be the first 9c in the world? We are curious.
2. Chris Sharma about his project in Peramola
Another contender for the first 9c is, of course, Chris Sharma, who has settled down in Spain, the sport climbing mecca par excellence.
3. A long, hard roof boulder near Barcelona
Chris Sharma proved that he can still keep up with younger top athletes with his ascent of the 8c roof boulder Catalan Witness the Fitness near Barcelona. He could have the strength and stamina he needs for an 9c.
4. Free Soloing on the coast of Northern Ireland
The nerve-racking Alex Honnold may not be missing. Smear Antihydral on your fingertips before you watch this movie.
5. Hard Trad ascent in Utah
Even hard trad routes of the Wide Boyz may not be missing.
6. Four-legged climbing arts
Because LACRUX is an online medium, the cat video should not be missing either.
