UKC interviews Thomas Willenberg who has climbed multiple V15s but is relatively unknown these days:
In the last decade both climbing and bouldering have changed significantly. At the end of the 90s and the start of the 2000, the scene was dominated by charismatic personalities. These have been replaced by less colourful people in a never ceasing performance spiral.
But maybe I’m just old fashioned, and probably this is simply something that belongs to this modern era and its character.
