The Arch 8B by Irina Kuzmenko

Sunday, 18 July

Irina Kuzmenko, #3 in the Euro Bouldering Championship in 2019, has done her third 8B in 2021, The Arch in Rocklands.

Last trip in 2019 I did all the moves in one session and did not try to send it. This year just came and did it on my seventh attempts from the start. Hard topout, nice moves :) so happy I managed it quickly! Definitely came back stronger.

What is next? I’m working on Monkey Wedding (8B+). It is super hard but it feels I can do it :), maybe not this trip but still.

I did the first easiest part in one session and I am working on the hardest and the longest move in the second part. Hard to do it in a stable way but I believe it possible!

Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
