Théo Blass is the youngest climber who has climbed the 9a red point difficulty level so far. Magnus Midtbo wanted to experience first-hand how strong the young Frenchman is and met the 13-year-old bouldering in his home country. A duel in which the Norwegian Youtuber had to dress warmly.
Theo pale is 13 years old and is traded as the next Adam Ondra. This is no coincidence: he climbed at the age of twelve Trip Tik Tonik already his first 9a route. No one has ever done that before him. The direct comparison with the former climbing professional Magnus Midtbo shows how strong the top shot of the new climbing generation is and gives an idea of what will still be possible in the future of climbing.
