Ben Burkhalter sends "Blade Runner" 8B+/C

The Swiss Giuliano Cameroni sents a new first ascent with “Blade Runner” 8C in the bouldering area Rocky Mountains National Park (RMNP) last year. The Boulder is an variation to “Jade” (8B+). He is not sure about the rating, then graded him “soft” 8C or 8B+/C: “6 moves V10 into 3 moves hard and technical V13. maybe 8b+/c” Now Ben Burkhalter was able to send the second repeat after three sessions, which speaks well for the grade 8B+/C. Also the first repeater Sam Weird given the Boulder the personal grade 8B+. Nevertheless, a super performance Ben and congratulations to the first 8C Boulder.
