This perfectly pure granit shape, standing in a magical himalayan forest is probaly the most beautiful piece of rock I ever found - one of the best problems in the world? The arrangement of the holds, the place, the setting - it can`t get much better. The unique starthold is a inclusion, a different kind of rock. I dont need 10 pads & five spotters pushing me up the wall. I can try this alone with one pad surrounded by quietness 🍀🌞🙏

#nature #boulder #art #moments
After the drought the ☔️ did it`s work & South Africa was blooming this year. It was wonderful to arrive in the Cederberg 🏔 , witnessing how quick Nature recovers from the drought & the traces left by the climbing impact of the past years. After busy checking out „all“ new sectors, exploring other places I virtually got lost by the quantity of quality problems put up in the past years. 🤩 
But I ❤️ aretes and I had to check out @nalle_hukkataival masterpiece „Finish Line“ 🔥 such a proud line. In the end it comes down to friction, ( as always ) & I only felt friction once ...i will be back 🙂

It was great, and i feel blessed in these times to met old friends again, making new ones & enjoy the quietness on the @alphaexcelsior 🙏🌞🍀 Thank you ALL for the wonderful time & big thx to my brother Alex taking care of my back 😂

dreamtime APRIL 15, 2001 Dreamtime
Tessin, Switzerland

The world’s hardest boulder problem of that time, Dreamtime was the first boulder graded with Fb.8C, opened by legendary Fred Nicole. With this ascent I caught widespread public attention and suddenly stood in the limelight.
boulderer of year MARCH 15, 2003 Boulderer of the Year
Climbing Magazine, USA

In 2003 I was honored for my achievements by renowned Climbing magazine and became the first European climber to win the title: “Boulderer Of The Year“.
anam cara OCTOBER 23, 2007 Anam Cara
Galtür, Austria

In 2005 doctors told me for the first time that I will never will be able to crimp on small edges with my left hand again because of a bad finger injury. They told me I will never do hard boulders again, but two years later I proved myself that I can hang on the wildest crimpers again and work on impossible looking features. Anam Cara was big step in my climbing career and mental development … plus, it was one of the hardest climbs in the world back in the day.
from the dirt APRIL 1, 2009 From the Dirt Grows the Flower
Chironico, Switzerland

Back in 2009: Worldwide, there have been only a few boulder problems and climbers who climbed in the grade 8C. In these days there have been lots of grade discussions within the climbing scene and rumors spreading the web. After making hard first ascents in my home areas of Austria, it was about time to check out “the new standard” put up by US climber Dave Graham and give it a try.
secrets MARCH 11, 2010 Secrets

A two-hour hike into unknown mountain regions and this crazy rock formation was mine. One of my personal top dream lines, unrepeated!
molecule man SEPTEMBER 5, 2009 Molecule Man
Berlin, Germany

That would be a great picture my friend told me, while we were on a sightseeing tour in Berlin. A few days later I climbed the Molecule Man statue in the early morning. It was a special event in my life and the view from the top over Berlin was just a unique ... so was the boat ride. 🙂
shantaram JUNE 11, 2013 Shantaram
Osen, Norway

Many boulders have inspired me. Shantaram on the small island of Osen, Norway blew my mind. Linking its 23 holds together seemed utopian to me during my first five-week trip in 2012 but inspired by the unique mix of ocean and rocks a year later, I finally conquered the exit handle after another five weeks of intense attempts.
29  dots MAY 27, 2015 29.DOTS
Valle dell' Orco, Italy

For many 29.DOTS (Fb.8a+) would have been a sport climb, for me it was the tallest boulder I ever climbed. A very special moment in my climbing career with special preparation to climb such a tall boulder and difficult line without a rope.
into the sun APRIL 1, 2017 Into the Sun
Murgtal, Switzerland

After my bad accident on December 29th, 2015 doctors told me I would never climb hard again. 489 days after this fall I succeeded in making the first free ascent. Into the Sun is graded 8c+, as such it checks in as one of the hardest trad climbs in the world, but, far more importantly, it marks an important comeback.
il colonel MAY 5, 2019 Il Colonel
Valle dell' Orco

Il Colonel, in the Italian region of Piemont, is an uncompromising dream of a climb. Italian Niky Ceria put up the standstart back in 2017, and right after climbing the standstart, I started looking for a way to solve this sitstart problem. I already had a possible sequence in my mind back in 2015, but I was just too weak after the accident to do so. It remained a dream until 2019. After lots of training and rehabilitation I finally was able to add two super hard moves to the existing boulder problem.
grenzenlos OCTOBER 19, 2020 Grenzenlos
Valle dell' Orco (Italy)

One of the wildest climbs I ever did; very powerful & technical climbing with poor protection. Once you reach the no fall zone, you must be 100% committed to get to the top. This is one of the most beautiful lines I ever climbed. I am so grateful …
