In 2016, Nalle Hukkataival climbed Burden of dreams V17 in Lappnor, Finland. It was the first climb of the grade.
Hukkataival named the route in reference to a documentary film about the chaotic production of Werner Herzog’s 1982 film Fitzcarraldo.
The route takes a straight line up the middle of a seemingly featureless 45-degree overhanging face. The rock is a form of red granite.
Burden of Dreams consists of only five hand moves in four meters of climbing. Therefore it certainly represents a return to the roots of bouldering, distilling difficulty to its bare essence.
