A few weeks ago, Niccol˛ Ceria spent 10 days in ┼land, an archipelago with a few big and about a billion small islands between Sweden and Finland.
┼land, or Ahvenanmaa, belongs to Finland, but I guess the relation could be described as complicated... but anyway, Niky managed to make the first repeat of Nalle Hukkataival's Living the dream which was given 8B+ by Nalle back in 2007. Niky figured it was closer to 8B, so more repeats are needed.
He also made the first post break ascent of Normipńivń, ~8B, another Hukkataival creation and made his own mark by putting up Nitro, ~8B.
