17 8A to 8B+ in a week by Vadim Timonov

Vadim Timonov, who one year ago had a bad snow board accident which made him stop climbing for some months, has been in Albarracin and in just a week he did 17 boulders 8A to 8B+. On the picture, by Irinia Kuzmekova, La Teoria del Todo 8B+, which he did in just a 90 min session.

"It was a great trip! good weather for bouldering, good condition. Sometimes I wanted to climb something harder, but there are no difficult routes. I'm glad to climb a lot of boulders - a great start to the season.

Now it is the time to prepare for the competition! In a couple of weeks I'm flying to Japan and I plan to do all but the one in USA! Next plans on the rocks - the Burden of Dreams in April."
(By coincidence, yesterday Daniel Woods said to 8a that he also plans going to Finland to try Hukkataival's 9A in April.?

In 2017, Vadim's worst result in the WC was #20. Last year he was #25 in the WCH in Innsbruck, just three months training after his accident that left him with two plates in his shoulder. Interesting is also that Vadim has no sponsor and is actually buying his La Sportiva Solution and Scarpa VSR.
