Nalle Hukkataival sends what is possibly his hardest problem yet?

Nalle Hukkataival sends 13 year-old project.

Nalle has been throwing down a lot of hard ascents near Maltatal, Austria lately and this one may be his hardest ever. A known project for about 13 years, the sit start to B├╝geleisen climbs up a large, overhanging block of stone. Having to fight poor weather conditions over the past few years, Nalle finally found the fitness and conditions necessary to take this project down. In a Facebook post Nalle says the this line “could be the hardest thing I’ve climbed”. That’s saying a lot considering his recent ascent of Gioia, a problem that’s been given the rating of V16 by both its first ascensionist, and Adam Ondra who nabbed the second ascent!

In this new video we get to see Nalle’s ascent of one of the hardest boulder problems in the world Gioia in Varazze, Italy. The problem is rated 8C+(V16). Nalle contends that this is indeed one of the hardest boulder problems he has ever done, but questions whether it is a full grade harder than most 8C’s already out there.

Seems like most of climbing’s elite athletes choose to spend what would be the summer months in the Northern Hemisphere, climbing in cooler temps in the Grampians. Here’s a video of Nalle Hukkataival getting his climb on down under! Enjoy!

Edit: thought this was new, looks like it’s from 2011, still great climbing!
