Tyler Landman on Dreamtime, Cresciano, Switzerlan
ph: Adam Lincoln
This time the young Tyler (aka Ty) Landman managed to send Dreamtime
, in Cresciano, Switzerland.
There has been a big debate about the grade of this problem, that was a benchmark for 8C (it has been the first problem to get a Font 8C/ V15 - first ascent Fred Nicole
2000), but has been downgraded after few holds have been chipped/improved.Tyles said on PlanetFear.com
"[...] I believe the problem to be proper 8B+. It felt (relatively) difficult to me so maybe harder 8B+ but that could just be because I am a bit short.
I don't think it is quite hard enough for 8C and I can not comment on chipping because I did not see it when it was first done, but I can say that it is in my opinion the most impressive and aesthetic boulder I have ever climbed on and whether it has been chipped or not, I don't think it takes away from Dreamtime."
Tyler tried Dreamtime for 2 days and a half last october and managed the standing start.
I then went back in November and sent it second go, as he said, like in a dream!
Ty will now move to Boulder Colorado!
Good luck Ty in the US... you have pleanty to do there, I guess you won't get bored!
