New Bloc Times

The bouldering in Australia’s Grampians, and the sector Buandik in particular, has gotten wide attention the past couple of years as climbers like Nalle Hukkataival, Dave Graham, Daniel Woods, Ian Dory, Paul Robinson and others have visited, raising the area’s profile considerably1.  As is often the case though, they are not the first climbers to visit these “new” areas.

 For more background on some of the local activity that has taken place before, during and after these climbers’ visits, the blog New Bloc Times has a nice collection of words, pictures and videos that describe more of the history of these incredible looking areas.

Paul Robinson Repeats Jaws II

After having done five 5.14’s including the only repeat of Dave Graham’s 5.14+ Psychedelic, Paul Robinson took it up a notch with a repeat of Jaws II (5.15a) in Rumney, NH yesterday:

I spent two days falling off of the top and finally today, 10/30, I managed to make the fifth ascent of jaws II, 5.15a. This marks my hardest sport climb to date and a dream realized, to climb both v15 and 5.15. The psyche is high as I leave Rumney on a high note.

Three 5.14d’s In One Day By…Guess Who

Adam Ondra is set to compete in the upcoming Lead World Cups in Valence, France and  in Kranj, Slovenia, but before doing that he’s made a stop in the Frankenjura where he’s done three 5.14d’s in a single day according to his 8a scorecard.

He started off with a second go repeat of The Elder Statesman followed by a second go repeat of The House Of Schock, and then he finished up the trifecta with a repeat of Sever The Wicked Hand.  Not content, as usual, he then finished up the day with a second go repeat of Wut zum Leben (5.14b).

Not bad.

5.14c For Eva Lopez

Great to see this news about 42-year-old Eva Lopez repeating Potemkin, a 5.14c in Cuenca, Spain that she actually bolted but did not get the FA of.
