Winter Granite in Cresciano, Switzerland
Photos by Claudia Colonia – Featured in this gallery is a series of black and white photos from one of Switzerland’s great boulderfields Cresciano. The fine-grained granite wonderland is home to hundreds of amazing problems like Fred Nicole’s testpiece Dreamtime, established in November 2000 (which is possibly the first 8c/V15 boulder problem ever) and Dave Graham’s Confessions (8b+/V14) recently flashed by Adam Ondra (which is possibly the hardest boulder flash ever) in December 2009. Shown in this set are a few mouthwater slopers and crimps demonstrated by Italian Alessandro Penna.
