Jakob Schubert vs Sleepwalker at Red Rocks, USA

by

The vlog of Austrian climber Jakob Schubert and his recent bouldering trip to Red Rocks, USA, with Nicolai Uznik and Michael Piccolruaz and his attempts to repeats Sleepwalker, the 8C+ boudler problem put up by Jimmy Webb.

Jakob Schubert is used to setting himself goals and achieving them. The 31-year-old Austrian is one of the world's strongest climbers, in competitions he's been crowned Lead World champion a staggering three times, from the first Olympic Games in Tokyo he took home silver, outdoors he's redpointed up to 9b+, bouldered up to 8C in just a few hours and even flashed 8B+. His obvious next level is an 8C+ boulder, and a recent trip to Red Rocks in the USA with Nicolai Uznik and Michael Piccolruaz provided the opportunity to try his hardest yet, Jimmy Webb's 8C+ Sleepwalker. Check out the joys and frustrations of investing days of effort into just one small set of moves.
