In just 48 hours in Switzerland, 29-year-old climber Jakob Schubert sent nine boulders, flashing five, including a V14.

Said Schubert, “Flashing The Never Ending Story (8B+/V14) at the end of day two was the absolute highlight. I really wanted to flash this one, I was nervous before. I pulled it off, so psyched! I was massively motivated and after a really good start I felt very capable and the trip turned out super successful.”
