Hojer Sends Dreamtime (V15)

Jan Hojer has ticked Dreamtime (V15) in Cresciano, Switzerland. "The perfect boulder," wrote Hojer on 8a.nu. "Did the dyno method because I can't even imagine to hold these crimps. Much harder than any 8B+ (V14) I have ever tried."

Jan Hojer has ticked Dreamtime (V15) in Cresciano, Switzerland.

“The perfect boulder,” wrote Hojer on 8a.nu. “Did the dyno method because I can’t even imagine to hold these crimps. Much harder than any 8B+ (V14) I have ever tried.”

Established by Fred Nicole in 2000, Dreamtime was possibly the world’s first V15 and considered a benchmark of the grade. However, the problem’s original state was claimed to have been altered by extensive wire brushing and the grade of the problem was suggested to be V14 after Malcolm Smith’s repeat in 2004. In 2009, a major hold broke from the Dreamtime, and now the problem’s grade has been suggested at 8C (V15) once again.
