After seven days of work, in what he describes as perfect conditions, Thomas Hocke managed to make the 8th ascent of Andre Behr's Crashpad dummy, 8B+ trav, at the Schirradorf boulders in the Frankenjura. Thomas describes how he, on the day of the ascent, went from "certain he would send" to "another training day", until, on his last try (which sort of goes without saying really. I mean, how often do you succeed on your second to last try?), everything clicked perfectly and he just flowed through it almost effortlessly.
