Tackling the 8th grade in Albarracin

Tackling the 8th grade in Albarracin

October 19 2010

Two of Belgium's strongest boulderers took a trip to Albarracin in Spain. Both Jan De Smit and Michel Walraet set out to tackle the eight grade. Jan de Smit, who specializes in jeté-problems climbed Turboklinex, 8A+ (or 7C+ for the tall ones) onder ons) and two 8A, problems; Monos en Frambuesa. Michel also climbed Frambuesa after 50 attempts. Never give up without a fight!

[Edit: 22-10-2010] Jan de Smit sent yesterday a new 8A+ in Albarracin: Cosmos 8A+. The boulder was climbed by Nicolas Mathieu begin 2009.

Jan trakteerde zichzelf op Turboklinex, 8A+ (of 7C+ voor de kleineren onder ons)
LOL 8A+ dyno en 7C+ voor kleintjes....

het zou natuurlijk ook kunnen dat het 8a+ was voor midgets maar voor jan 7C+ voelde, wat denk je ?
