Paul Robinson is currently living in Innnsbruck, Austria. During the summer and autumn, he had the opportunity of visiting some of the country's premiere bouldering areas, repeating some of the hardest problems.
In this video we get to follow him to Sundergrund in the Zillertal and to Silvretta, where he repeats Bernd Zangerl's Anam cara, ~8B+.
Recently, Paul has spent time in Varazze, Italy, where the plan was to try to repeat Christian Core's Gioia, ~8C+. he got close, but in the end a split tip forced him to leave it for the moment. According to Paul ...it is such a fun climb, but with one hold of death, like a bird's beak that you crimp!
While in Varazze he repeated Gandalf il Grigio, 8B+, and Alpha Centauri Sit, 8B.
