UPDATE: One Day Only!

Arjan de Kock has put his good form to excellent use on the gneiss boulders of Switzerland, putting in perhaps the most impressive achievement yet by any South African boulderer. In the blocs of Chironico, he managed to make a one day ascent of "Boogalagga" 8B, making him the first to climb this grade in a single session. Then Arjan repeated this feat the very next day in Brione by climbing "Amber" 8B, again in a single session!

No footage of Arjan on the problems, but check out this video of some Brits on the same climbs. "Amber" is up first, and "Boogalagga" is the third and last.

UPDATE: A cool clip has emerged from Arjan's brief Swiss trip. Check it out:
