Vadim Timonow stayed in the Central Caucasus and discovered there in the side valley of the Baksan in the Elbrus area with „Djan-tugan“, according to his own statement, a world-class bouldering area. The area only emerged after a mudslide in 2017 when it cleared a lot of blocks. Of course, he also opened up a few boulders there and was able to climb his hardest boulder to date with the first ascent of „Low Priora“ 8C/ +. It should also be the hardest boulder in Russia. For Wadim was it also the ninth boulder of grade 8C or harder.

„On the last day of our trip to Caucasus, I made the ascent it feels like hardest boulder I’ve ever climbed. The potential of the Dantugan region is impressive! I will definitely come back there. video coming soon!“
