Video: Paul Robinson opens new 8b + Boulder in Flatirons

Local climbers Chad Greedy and Isabelle Faus found a new block a few months ago in The Flatirons Bouldering, Colorado. It was not long before Paul Robinson and other strong American boulderers took on the problem. On the 9. In January, Paul Robinson managed the first ascent.

The freezing temperatures in The Flatirons in Colorado could not deter Paul Robinson, Daniel Woods and other ambitious contenders for the first ascent of a project from bouldering. They were all always close to the passage, but that certain something was missing. Until January 7th, when Paul Robinson announced: “Yes! Managed to make the first ascent of La Plancha yesterday. It is so rad to see new lines in a state where we already have so many incredible established lines. The line is an ode to the infamous “bugeleisen” in Austria and is shaped very similarly like that of an iron. “As a rating, Paul Robinson suggests 8b +.

Second and third inspections followed a few days later

The other candidates did not have to wait long for the successful ascent. Just a few days later, Daniel Woods announced that he and Matt Fultz had made it through. The boulder has so far counted three ascents.
