Jörg Guntram, on tour in Sweden with Tobi Kleemair, has managed to make the 2nd ascent of Stefan Rasmussen's great looking The Hourglass, 8B+, at Björnblocket, near Västervik.

Stefan, portrayed in Shawn Boye's movie The Sends, has been working tirelessly for many years, developing bouldering areas around Västervik on the Swedish east coast. The Hourglass is his hardest so far, and a contender for the hardest in the country.
