Jakob Schubert was bouldering again in the Swiss bouldering area „Magic Wood“. The result was a direct exit of Daniel Woods‘ boulder „La Force Tranquille“ (8C) from 2011. Jakob graded also the direct exit with 8C.

„Magic Wood continues to deliver… Psyched to come back home with a FA in my bag this time!

The conditions were perfect and I was able to make quick work of La Force Tranquille [8C] within the first day. Love this crimpy 5-star boulder which was opened by @dawoods89 in 2011 so much! In course of coming back for a few photos the next day I checked out the long-standing direct exit to the boulder, which adds some extra spice.

The level of psyche was high and I surprised myself by sticking the dynamic moves just about one hour later for the first ascent of ‚La Force Tranquill direct‘! Couldn’t be happier to add this kingline to the forest.

Boulders are even more difficult to grade for me than routes but I think it’s only a bit harder than Daniel’s original line. Find some more thoughts and the rest of the boulders that went down on this 2-day trip on my profile on @thecrag_worldwide (link in profile)

There is uncut footage that I love to share soon on my YouTube channel
