Whiplash 8C by Vadim Timonov

Friday, 10 September

Vadim Timonov has repeated Alexey Rubtsov's Whiplash 8C in Lietlahti Park. "This is a sit-down start to an 8B/+. After I did the first part, it took me four attempts to get through it entirely. But I did everything on different days since the boulder loads the biceps very much."

Next Friday, Vadim will compete in the World Championship qualification in Mosow.
