People have been ticking boulder problems all over the place in the last few days. Here is some news from the UK, Italy, The US and Switzerland.

At Caley, Shauna Coxsey, 18 (for a few days more), did Zoo york, 8A, for her hardest of the, still very young, year. Last year she did Pilgrim, 8A+, in the Parisella's Cave.
24 March, Shauna will compete against Alex Puccio, Sasha Digiulian, Mélanie Sandoz and Matilda Söderlund in the Tierra Boulder Battle at Klättercentret in Stockholm.

At Monte Amiata, Italy, Michele Caminati has made his hardest ever first ascent by climbing L' Ultimo dei Moicani which he gives "hard 8B+".

At Elkland, Colorado, daniel Woods made the second ascent of David Graham's recently opened Memory is parallax, 8B+. Source: 27 crags.

Last but not least, and perhaps not news really, Guntram Jörg has spent a couple of days in Ticino with German photographer Frank Kretschman. As usual Gu couldn't help himself from doing a few hard classics while there. Enjoy the video!
