Tyler Landman has repeated Dreamtime at Cresciano, Switzerland. This was first climbed by Fred Nicole in 2000 and was the first boulder problem to get the grade of V15/Font 8c.

Landman has quite a resumé (he is moving to the USA!) of hard bouldering ascents including the Ace V13/Font 8b at the Stanage Plantation, the Mandala Font V12/Font 8a+ in Bishop, California and Nuthin But Sunshine Font V13/14..Font8b/+ at Rocky Mountain State Park in Colorado.
