Big progress on the Lappnor project! Had a great night session on it and practically managed to link it in two parts! It’s taken 2 years to get this far and linking a project in two parts is one of the biggest mental barriers in the process, so I’m more than psyched! Temps are perfect right now and I’m hoping that the stars align to get the project sent this season!

One of the best boulders I’ve ever climbed! First ascent of Good Hope (V13) in Rocklands. It’s lines like this that make the relentless search for new climbs worth the effort. Such good times in South Africa this season!

Progress on the project again!! Yesterday I managed to do every individual move in a session. That may not seem like much of an achievement but having spent 2 years working on this project, it’s quite a milestone. It’s finally coming together!! Photo: Blue Kangoo Films

This is the African Star project. We found this incredible boulder on an expedition in Swaziland with Jimmy Webb, Clement Perotti and Cameron Maier. One of the proudest lines I’ve seen in my life, it overlooks the famous granite dome of Sibebe. With about 13 meters of extremely hard climbing, dynos and tiny holds, this could one day be something very, very hard. Photo: Clement Perotti

The battle continues! I’m back in Finland trying to finish the Lappnor project. Returning to my project feeling really strong after previous trips and getting totally shut down was quite humbling, but that’s exactly the kind of challenge we’re looking for. Conditions are getting prime and I’m hoping to finally make some breakthroughs in the coming weeks! Photo: Blue Kangoo Films

Going big in Spain at the @redbull Psicobloc! Only Chris Sharma and I ended up sticking this committing dyno high above the water and topping out the route. It was great to see Chris so in his element over the water and winning the competition! Photo: Toni Montes

Last day, best day! Surfing out the finishing scoop for a 1-day first ascent of The Lonely Crowd (V14)! One of those moments when everything just clicks and a hell of a way to finish off a great trip! It was a very successful trip for me and this incredible finger-strength boulder was just one out of many great first ascents. Stay tuned for all the videos! Now onto the next one! #bouldering #rockclimbing
