Jakob Schubert recently made the first ascent of La Force Tranquille direct (8C/V15) in Switzerland’s Magic Wood. This boulder was a long-standing project, a more direct exit to Daniel Wood’s crimpy original line.

In a press release about his ascent, Schubert wrote:

Magic Wood continues to deliver! Psyched to come back home with a FA in my bag this time!The conditions were perfect and I was able to make quick work of La Force Tranquille [8C] within the first day. Love this crimpy 5-star boulder which was opened by Daniel Woods in 2011 so much! When coming back for a few photos the next day, I checked out the long-standing direct exit to the boulder, which adds some extra spice.

The level of psyche was high and I surprised myself by sticking the dynamic moves just about one hour later for the first ascent of ‚La Force Tranquill direct‘! Couldn’t be happier to add this kingline to the forest.Boulders are even more difficult to grade for me than routes but I think it’s only a bit harder than Daniel’s original line.”
