Yannick Flohé establishes new 8C+ in Cresciano

Yannick Flohé has made the first ascent of a new 8C+ problem on the Dreamtime boulder in Cresciano, naming it 'Return of the Dreamtime'.

The Dreamtime boulder is already host to some of the world's hardest boulder problems, The Dagger (f8B+) - flashed by Will Bosi late last year, Dreamtime (f8B+), The Story of Two Worlds (f8C), and Shawn Raboutou's extension, The Story of 3 Worlds (f8C+)

Sharing the news on instagram, Flohé described his new boulder as follows:

'Starting on Dreamtime but going right after the dyno. It adds the crux of Somnolence (8B) a big move on slopers that turned out to be quite hard coming from the ground with sweaty skin and pumped forearms'.

Speaking about the grade of the new problem, he said 'it feels quite easy for 8C+, but comparing it to Dreamtime it's on another level so the grade seems logical to me'.

Flohé's trip to Switzerland has already been a successful one. On day one of the trip he was able to make swift repeats of both Ephyra (f8C+), and From Dirt Grows The Flowers (f8C), as well as, more recently, making a quick ascent of Squalo Bianco (f8B+).
