Paul Robinson is continuing his send train with the first ascent of La Plancha in the Flatirons close to Boulder.
Chad Greedy and Isabelle Faus cleaned the hard line and Robinson made the first ascent last week.
Yess!!! Managed to make the first ascent of “La Plancha,” yesterday up in the flatirons. A huge thank you to @diegolmontull and @tchadx for showing me this amazing line. It is so rad to see new lines in a state where we already have so many incredible established lines. The line is an ode to the infamous “bugeleisen” in Austria and is shaped very similarly like that of an iron. My guess for the grade on the line is about low end v14/8B+. I can’t wait for others to go out and check this problem out. #bouldering thanks for the amazing photo: @punkaca
Daniel Woods and Matt Fultz soon repeated and confirmed the grade at V14.
La Plancha means “the iron” and is a play on the famous boulder problem Bügeleisen, which means iron in German, which Robinson climbed two months ago.
