The Ticklist #56 Hard Swiss Bouldering and Ondra Update

In this week's Ticklist, we have some hard Swiss bouldering and an update on Ondra...

Off the Wagon Sit

Shawn Raboutou's Off the Wagon Sit (Font 8C+) has had two ascents courtesy of Yannick Flohé and Sergii Topishko. It was Topishko's first Font 8C+ and quite remarkably, the 33-year-old had only previously climbed one Font 8B+.

Flohé reported his ascent on Instagram:

Sinnhuber on form in Cresciano

Karoline Sinnhuber has climbed two Font 8A+s in Cresciano, Switzerland, with ascents of Frank's Wild Years and The North Sail. On Frank's, she initially struggled with a tricky right heel hook before ticking it. She believed the highball The North Sail to be slightly soft for the grade but nonetheless, she's going well to climb both in quick succession.

Ondra Update

Adam Ondra saw out 2021 in fine style. He made the first ascent of Kout Pickle (9a+) at Byci skala, near his home town of Brno. He believes that the two bolt route has a Font 8C boulder on it. Watch Adam make the first ascent in the video below:

Next up, he made the second ascent of Stefano Ghisolfi's The Lonely Mountain (9b) in Arco, Italy. The 28-year-old plans to spend the next couple of months in Arco trying to repeat routes and develop new ones.
