What a perfect climbing / bouldering trip to Cresciano and Chironico (Ticino, Swiss) for Slovenian climbers.
Player of the trip was definitely Jernej Kruder with first Slovenian 8C boulder – The story of two worlds (8C)! Before that he also sended The Dagger (8B+). And lot of others boulders graded 8A and more. Kiddo is already writing the history of Slovenian climbing.
Jernej on UKClimbing.com:
I’m very happy that my name is on the list of one of the hardest boulders in the world 🙂
And who else sended this boulder problem. First ascent was made by Dave Graham in 2005. Six years latter Paul Robinson did second ascend. Third ascend was made by best Japanes climber Dai Koyamada. And now Jernej Kruder did it and this is fourth ascent of The Story of Two Worlds!
Just for information, complete Slovenian crew sended more than 25 boulders with grade 8A or more.
Go to Jernej’s blog to read the whole story and we are all waiting for video 🙂
