"Black Diamond athlete Paul Robinson tore it up in Fall 2010 on the granite boulders of Switzerland, ticking off multiple problems in the 8B and above range, including a couple 8Cs (one, a first ascent). We sent ace lensman Bernardo Gimenez up to Switzerland to capture some of Robinson's bouldering sendage, as well as develop a video profile of Robinson that would showcase his personality and drive.
The weather crapped out during Gimenez's visit, but the ever-stoked Robinson still climbed a bunch of rad 8B to 8B+ problems for the camera, as well as sat down and explained his motivations and aspirations."
