Landman Repeats Sharma Font 8c

Britain's Tyler Landman has completed the second ascent of Chris Sharma's, Practice Of The Wild in Magic Wood, Switzerland.

Sharma made the first ascent of the problem back in 2004 and a grade of Font 8c was proposed. The repeat took Tyler 4 days of effort and on his Scorecard he comments:

"2nd ascent after watching Sharma establish 4 years ago! Favourite style of climbing. 1st go 4th day. Certainly one grade harder than New Base Line"

Eighteen year old Landman is obviously on fine form at the moment and along with American Paul Robinson (Great Blog) is taking Swiss bouldering by storm, with quick repeats of many established desperates.

Tyler has now climbed around 38 problems of Font 8b or harder across the US and Europe including seven Font 8b+'s and two Font 8c's.
