Shawn Raboutou and Aidan Roberts are currently among the strongest boulderers in the world. But even with these calibers things are not always easy, as a three-hour session in the Vecchio Low project shows.
Aidan Roberts and also Shawn Raboutou have the gift of often making hard boulders look pretty easy. A video from Brione underscores the fact that these rare moments, when everything comes together, require enormous effort and even greater determination. The two boulder topshots try the sit start version of Vecchio Leone and gnash their teeth on a single movement for almost three hours.
