Ayran 8B by Irina Kuzmenko

Monday, 31 May

Irina Kuzmenko has done her second 8B in the last month, Ayran in Djan-tugan. It was put up by her boyfriend, Vadim Timonov last week. In 2019, both got the bronze in the European Championship. "Amazing boulder! Very hard for core! After I did this boulder felt like my whole upper body is stronger! So happy!!!" Video on her Insta

How was the process taking it down?
I tried it out during 2 sessions last year. It wasn’t actually sessions I think, more like 2 attempts and frustration:) So last year there was one move I couldn't do. This year I did all the moves in the 2nd session and then I had 3 more sessions to put it together and struggling with the very hot sun! :) The boulder is very hard and of course. My beta was special, because I’m not that tall and this changing on bad undercling...wow, super hard! Vadim told me that he’ll never do that 😂Thanks to him btw for the FA!
