This spring, 19 year old Finnish up and coming bouldering star, Anthony Gullsten, spent some time among the pebbles of Fontainebleau and Ticino.
Alvi Pakarinen captured some of the action on video.
Compared to the level Andy is capable of (~8B+ or so), the featured problems are perhaps not brick hard, but what always amazes me is his super smooth style. Don't get me wrong, the guy is wicked strong, but he never seems to have to try that hard.
