Two Repeats Of Bunda De Fora (5.14d) By Muller, Kinder

Lev Pinter’s Bunda De Fora (5.14d) at the limestone crag Acephale in Canada’s Bow Valley recently saw two repeats at the hands of Josh Muller and Joe Kinder.  Kinder has a great blog post about the process of working this route that includes pictures of both him and Muller attempting it that is well worth checking out. Here’s how Kinder framed his mentality when approaching the route as a project:

This trip to The Bow Valley was a test.  It was an experiment to gun it for one route, Bunda De Fora.  The drive up was a little anxiety ridden with the idea (that I kept to myself), that I was going to buckle down on one hard project, period.  I mean there were surely plan b, but this was what I wanted.  The climber mentality of “this is the most important thing in the world” is so obnoxious sometimes.  I mean we aren’t saving anyone or doing anything other than an activity that makes us happy and satisfies us.  Ridiculous I know.  But… this is truly what it takes to be invested in hard climbing.

Hard, Unrepeated American Boulders

I thought it would be interesting to compile a list of hard (V14 and up) boulder problems that have not been repeated in North America. Thanks to everyone for help in compiling these problems (Most of these grades are pure speculation from outside observers): Nuclear War – V14 – Matt Bosley – Harriman State Park, […]
