Martin Stráník solves Teorie Tygra 8B+ beneath heavy snowfall at Vesec
Beneath a heavy snowfall Czech rock climber Martin Stráník has made the first ascent of Teorie Tygra, an 8B+ boulder problem at Vesec in the Czech Republic.
There are few things that can stop Martin Stráník, the Czech climber recognised as being one of the strongest and, above all, most motivated in today’s climbing circuit. 15 years ago Stranik made headlines for his climbs outdoors with his 12-year-old friend Adam Ondra, and yesterday the 30-year-old braved the heavy snowfall to send his project at Vesec close to Liberec in the north of the country. The bouldering area is comprised of circa 200 very rough granite problems and, graded 8B+, Teorie Tygra is now the hardest in the area.
