Dreamtime repeats

04.01.2008 by Planetmountain

In December 2007 Kilian Fischhuber and Jon Cardwell repeated Dreamtime, Cresciano, Switzerland.

Kilian Fischhuber from Austria made Christmas come early with his repeat of one of the most famous boulder problems in the world, Dreamtime. Although the winner of the Bouldering World Cup 2007 had climbed a standing start version three years ago, he returned to the Tessin in December to climb the sit start. This proved easier said than done, and Fischhuber spent four days working out a starting sequence... an indication as to just how hard it is! He repeated the problem after a light snowfall on December 15, shortly after another repeat at the hands of Jon Cardwell.

First climbed in 2001 by none other than Fred Nicole, Dreamtime checked in as possibly the world' first 8c boulder problem before later settling down to Font 8b+. Despite its name is still only has a handful of repeats and remains a formidable challenge for the very best.

Reflecting on his ascent, Fischhuber stated "I've dreamt about climbing Dreamtime for a year. The line is beautiful and the climbing extremely demanding. I'd like to take this opportunity to say that access to the bouldering areas in the Tessin is very "delicate". We shouldn't take it for granted that we can climb on the farmer's land, and the areas could well be at risk of closure."
