Hardest flash climb ever: Brooke Raboutou boulders Nascondino

Brooke Raboutou flashed two tough boulders in Ticino: Nascondino (8A+/8B) and Darkness (8A+). With Nascondino, the strong American takes the maximum level of difficulty for this style of climbing to a new level.

True to the motto “if the weather is bad, every attempt must be successful”. Brooke Raboutou in Ticino, without further ado, the boulder Hide and seek (8A+/B) and Darkness (8A+) flashed. An incredible achievement when you consider that only a handful of female boulderers have ever managed to climb an 8A+ boulder in this style.
