Gui-Gui does Supertanker, 8B+ in Font  (8) Facebook

Yesterday, Gui-Gui completed his long-term project, Supertanker in very average conditions. This boulder, opened by Antoine Vandeputte in 2007, takes the "Big Golden" boulder and traverse it from left to right (around 8A in itself), to get to the start of Artresie (8A too). This may be the hardest problem in the 'Big 5' square.
Commenting his ascent, Guillaume tells that this problem was very beta-intensive for him, and that linking everything right took him quite some time. Trust him, the guy has done Artresie in itself around 50 times now, and still fell many times after the crux.

Spanish hard bouldering sends around Madrid  (13) Facebook

Click to Enlarge PictureReally nice friction for bouldering around Madrid during the last few days which brings quite a few sends on big numbers for different Spaniards:
Now that Klem Loskot is back again on the media it seems like people got attracted by one of his creations back in the days, El Monstruo de las Regletas, 8B (video) in El Escorial. Alfonso Arce, sent it last Thursday and Javier Meng and Ignasi Tarrazona did it yesterday.

Quite incredible what Alfonso (pic by Iván Luengo) is doing cause since we reported in the spanish site about his first 8B some 20 days ago, he's fired-off another three problems of such difficulty level (being the last the one we write about above).

Yesterday also and in the same area, Alberto Rocasolano was able to top out Triceratos sit, 8B.

A special mention is deserved by Nacho Sánchez who blogs about his last FA to Zarzafar for which he proposes 8B+. "Some years ago Iván Luengo showed me a project in Zarzalejo with long and physical moves on the start and an "odd" end. This one has been the first important objective for this season. After quite a few sessions and several attempts falling from the mantle, yesterday I was able to top it out."

Second 8C for Nacho Sánchez  Facebook

Click to Enlarge PictureYesterday, Nacho Sánchez was finally able to climb his 1,5 years old project in Crevillente, Insomnio, for which he's proposed 8C. He tells us: "It's a conglomerated rock roof with 6 very hard first moves on undercut crimpers and pinches and another 4 'easy' final movements. The 5th move is the hardest by far, but for several months I had been falling on the 6th move, a dyno a bit aleatory. The last part of the problem I did some years ago. A year and a half ago I started trying it from the bottom and in the last few months I've been besieging it."

Nacho had previously already done another 8C boulder problem, 'Entropía', in Castillo de Bayuela (news and video here). Pic: Mallorca outside.
