We ran the numbers to find that three out of four news stories are now regarding Jimmy Webb’s remarkable bouldering trip to Switzerland.
Clear Creek Canyon, Colorado’s Wall of the 90’s has seen some more action this season after Mark Anderson’s recent repeat of the area’s hardest route, Mission Impossible (5.14+).
At this point, it seems that we should just add a daily update to the ongoing story of Jimmy Webb’s Swiss trip.
Jimmy Webb has added the benchmark European 8C/V15 to his rapidly growing tick list of Switzerland’s hardest boulder problems.
13-year-old Mirko Caballero has become the youngest climber to tick the grade of V14 with an ascent of Meadowlark Lemon Sit at Red Rock, Nevada.
Yesterday, 12-year-old Ashima Shiraishi had her best day of sport climbing, sending an 8c+/5.14c and an 8c/5.14b in Spain’s Santa Linya cave.
Brad Weaver has climbed the direct start to Southern Smoke at the Red River Gorge, Kentucky.
Their route, aptly named Into the Light, climbs out from within the depths of the incredible, 300 meter deep Majlis al Jinn, the second largest cavern in the world located in Oman’s Hadschar Mountains.
A few days ago, she flashed Pamplemousse (V11) in Brione to join a select few women to have flashed the grade.
Jimmy has been on a path of destruction in the Swiss boulders since his arrival about two weeks ago.
