The young Swiss Giuliano Cameroni, currently traveling in the US, sends a new first ascent with „Blade Runner“ 8C in the Rocky Mountains National Park (RMNP). The Boulder is an variation to „Jade“ (8B +). He is not sure about the grading „soft“ 8C or 8B+/C: „6 moves V10 into 3 moves hard and technical V13.. maybe 8b+/c“

Giuliano to the Boulder“beautiful moves, start on the obvious jug and climb up and right till the big rail of jade, then same topout. was close on the direct proj but the crux foot got smashed off the wall before I got another chance.. a horrible act of jealousy.. felt a notch harder than domestic cat and jade, so low end or slash grade seems appropriate
