Der mit dem Fels tanzt 8C by Michiel Nieuwenhuijsen

Saturday, 16 October

Michiel Nieuwenhuijsen has done his second 8C in 2021, Der mit dem Fels tanzt 8C in Chironico, after just three sessions. The 30 mover was put up by Martin Keller after having projected it for 100+ days.

"In the first session, I did not feel so good. I was going pretty bad at all the moves of the lower start. I came really close on the finish (that is Einfisch Keinfisch 8A+) but felt on the mantle. I felt so out of breath that session. When we came back to the house it made all sense, I was just feeling really bad and spend the evening and the next 1.5 days in bed. Even though I could have Covid, but the test was negative :-) So. I didn't feel too confidant about the whole line. But that feeling was also a bit false as I was sick (I was saying that as much as I could to myself, as a confidence booster) ;-)

A few days later I came back to the boulder. Did Einfish and did all the moves of the lower start: ok I was sick last time and feeling a lot better now. Did some links and the confidence grew. Took an easy day and a rest day. Thought a lot of the moves that cost me a lot of energy and already made adjustments in my mind. Today I came back and send, so just 3 sessions. I did not expect to send it today, but sometimes that is how it goes."

Systematic Devaluing ethics

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era. Some ten years ago, you still had to place the draws if you were going to claim an onsight. The devaluation of ethics have continued and now…

No correlation between semi and final results for Top-4 in Boulder WCs

During the Bouldering World Championship in 2007, Daniel Dulac won the semifinal by flashing all four problems but in the final he did not do a single Boulder even if each of the other five finalists did three problems on average. Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
