Hardest Boulder

This is the hopefully up-to-date list of the world’s most hardest boulders. Compared to the 100 hardest routes in the world, this list was extremely difficult to put together. Some of the information was contradictory, and there have been some repetitions lately. Please do not hesitate to contact us for hints and additions. Also to this list a few remarks: The two, classified with the ninth grade, Boulder “Burden of Dreams” and “No Kapote Only” of the Finn Nalle Hukkataival and Charles Albert have not been repeated. In contrast, of the twelve Fb 8c +, at least half of the Boulder already has a repeater. The boulders in grade 8C+ were first climbed by ten different climbers. So bouldering is not dominated by a single climber, like “rope climbing” with Adam Ondra. Here are more than a dozen climbers who have been able to climb a Fb 8c + problem. Unfortunately, the first Fb 8c Boulder “Dreamtime” from 2001 by Fred Nicole is no longer in its original form. Also, the master himself says that “Dreamtime” compared to the “Monkey Wedding” in the Rocklands was probably harder a Fb 8B+ was. Photo:  Nalle Hukkataival in “Burden of Dreams” Fb 9a (c) Nalle
