Low Priora 8C (+) by Alexey Rubtsov

Alexey Rubtsov, the Boulder World Champion in 2009, who was #13 in the Olympics, has repeated Low Priora in Djan-tugan, suggesting a personal 8C grade. "In total, I cleaned and climbed 22 FAs from 5 to 8A+, out of which eight 8A or 8A+. Two new sectors were opened. I also repeated one 8B+ (downgrade from 8C) and one 8C (downgrade from 8C+) during a ten days trip. Caucasus is one of the best new climbing areas for sure!"
