Aplicativo de croquis do 8a

Em breve, o 8a vai apresentar um aplicativo grátis para celular, já com alguns croquis de falésias. A ideia é produzir croquis em colaboração com a comunidade da escalada mundial. Desse modo, no futuro teremos em nossos telefones os croquis de grande parte das milhares de falésias do 8a, e outras. As vias serão apresentadas da esquerda para a direita, e, nesse primeiro momento, serão baseadas nas tick lists. Também será possível criar croquis para novas áreas e atualizar os antigos. Quem quiser participar ativamente primeiro melhorando as tick lists e depois numerando as vias, envie um email (em inglês) para jens@8a.nu.

8B+ (C) and much more by Anthony Gullsten (19)

Anthony Gullsten has added ten boulders 8A and harder including Bernd Zangerl's Anam Cara in Silvretta for which he gives a personal grade of 8B+. "Amazing day! It was minus degrees outside so the friction was perfect. Did the moves pretty fast and then sent on my fourth go from the beginning. Cool movement and sequence but a bit sharp." The 19 year old fin has had a very strong progress the latest years and during the last 12 months he has done 73 boulders 8A and harder. He is 37 in the 8a game but without all his personal gradings, he would have been #3. Andy was #14 in the Boulder World Champion having done his preperation in Rocklands. Interview is coming up.

Gu and Woods do 8C

Guntram Jörg continues his amazing journey taking down the Switzerland classics and today he did Big Paw, 8C in Chironico. The last three weeks he has done nine boulders 8B and harder. "Its all about motivation, and since we are filming I'm even more psyched ;)... Everyone is so psyched and we push each other, like that bouldering should be." So what is your next project? "I dont know, just let it flow now.... probably all the nice climbs in font which havent been so much in the media." Also Daniel Woods did the nice David Graham problem a few tries later.

Full story Riccardo born 1968 has previously put up several multi pitches and he is kind of a late bloomer having done many 8c+ and harder almost 40 years old. (c) Giampaolo Corona
