Eliot Stephens climbs New Base Line and other classics at Magic Wood

The Briton Eliot Stephens was probably one of the first to visit the bouldering area Magic Wood this year. He braved the snow and climbed some of the most famous boulders in Averstal.

After a six-month injury break, the Brit Eliot Stephens drove to the Swiss bouldering area Magic Wood at a time when the snow was still everywhere between the blocks. He not only struggled with the bouldering problems per se, but also with a mix of meltwater and rain. But his ticklist can be seen - in a video that the 26-year-old recently published.
