Nils Favre climbs Off the Wagon 8B+ in Val Bavona, Switzerland

di

Switzerland’s Nils Favre has made a swift repeat of Off The Wagon 8B+ in Valle Bavona.

Some boulders capture the imagination more than others and at this rate Off The Wagon in Val Bavona, Switzerland, is destined to become one of the most popular 8B+ in the world. The latest to climb this pure power problem rendered famous by Chris Sharma and freed by Nalle Hukkataival in 2012 is Nils Favre; during his Ticino rampage the 29-year-old sent Podemos 8B at Cresciano, Big Kat 8B+ at Chironico in just two sessions, and now Off The Wagon in Valle Bavona via its original stand start off the famous cart. Favre immediately set to work on the sit start put up by Shawn Raboutou in 2019 and attempts have been encouraging.
