Tony Lamiche Coming to Colorado?

Posted on 20. Aug, 2007 by in Updates

This was taken from an interview off of 8a.nu with bouldering great Tony Lamiche

“Kairn : Your projects?
Tony : Beginning of septembre, I will leave for the US for a 2 months and
half bouldering trip.
I will go to Kentucky, at Red River Gorges where I will join some great
climbers such as Daniel Woods for bouldering. Then I will go to the Rocky
Mountain National Park (RMNP) and then to Bishop.”

Tony has proven himself time and again in America with ascents of The Fly 5.14d, Rumney, FA of the Mandala SDS, V14, Bishop, FA The Shield V13 LRC, as well as possibly the best day ever in Hueco Tanks when he did, among other things(all first day on each problem) Focus V10 (flash) Wellsite Dyno V10 (flash) Scream V10, Full Monty V12, Crown of Aragorn V13 (3rd go). It will be awesome to watch this crimp master at work in RMNP.

Here is a picture of me trying The Shield, at Little Rock City in Tennessee. I really think this is one of the most amazing problems in the world. I would love to go back and try it again. Tony had just put it up about a week before I was there.

    Hey Jamie,
    Tony Lamiche flashed Mandala, was first to repeat the Spectre, and also repeated Evilution for the second ascent:

    i dont think anyone has done the project to the right of the bull dog

    my buddy johnny was so close…smallest foot hold ever, you need a shit load of contact strength to stick the edge and its done..1 move wonder..
    he is back into climbing after 4 yrs off in thailand as a monk..finally

    ghetto methods is knot v10, its harder- if je had used all his fingers for the finish he would have sent no doubt…the proof is in the picture I saw
