Paul Robinson tops Meadowlark Lemon, an 8C boulder problem in Nevada

12.01.2012 by Planetmountain

Yesterday at Gateway Canyon in Nevada Paul Robinson freed his boulder problem Meadowlark Lemon 8C, the sitdown variation Meadowlark Lemon Stand.

We mentioned it just two days ago when reporting about the new problems established by Daniel Woods and Dai Koyamada and it really is true: new 8C problems are rearing their heads just like mushrooms after the rain! Some are completely new while others are variations (such as sitdown starts) to existing problems, but seeing that this is the game of bouldering, even two moves can make all the difference, like night and day...

This time a new problem has been sent by an inspired Paul Robinson who in Nevada's Gateway Canyon freed Meadowlark Lemon. This new "release" adds two intense moves - the sitstart - to his 8B Meadowlark Lemon Stand established two years back.

"The boulder is super physical, yet really technical" commented the American on 27crags adding "I considered it one of the best lines I have ever climbed on in the entire world." Meadowlark Lemon should be comparable in difficulty to Lucid Dreaming (Buttermilks, Bishop) and Il Trillo at Magic Wood, both freed by Robinson in 2010.
