Tyler Landman on the Ace 8B
According to his scorecard on 8a.nu, Britain's Tyler Landman
has made a flashed ascent of an unnamed Font 8b boulder problem in the Valais area. This makes Tyler one of only a handful of elite climbers to have flashed this sought after grade (Britain's James Pearson being one of the others.) His is the fourth ascent of what he describes as an,
"Amazing problem in a beautiful setting."
Tyler also comments that he feels the problem is "soft" for the grade. How long will it be before we witness a flash of a font 8b+ or harder? Watch this space!
Good work Tyler!
