Iker Arroitajauregi's must be on some kind of perpetual roadtrip. This time he has spent time in Albarracin and made a video.
The video features some problems in the 8A to 8B+ range and, to top it off, the first ascent of Txapela, ~8C.
Dani Andrada managed to repeat the problem and has told Desnivel his thought about the grade.
To him this is not really a boulder problem but more of a hybrid. He says anything above 15 moves has more in common with route climbing and thus, he feels this should be called 8C traverse or perhaps 8C link (as it's not a traverse) and also that it would weigh in around 9a as a route.
In its purest form, a boulder shouldn't have more than six moves..
What do you think?
