World Champion Alexey Rubtsov Sends First V15

Alexey Rubtsov was once the World Champion and he has now sent Dave Graham’s From Dirt Grows the Flower V15 in Switzerland. Rubstov sent the original problem with the hard mantle. On Instagram, Rubtsov wrote, “Finally I finished my old project From Dirt Grows Flowers V15! Few times I came in Ticino for this boulder, I was close one year ago, falling just from last move few days straight.

“Now I decided not to climb it a lot, just did two attempts one some days ago and second today. I think that I just must to become stronger. Amazing route I am incredibly happy.”

There is a left hand variation that adds seven moves through a traverse and goes at V15. Watch Manuel Brunn send Dirt Grows the Flowers below.
