After four years of work, on October 23, 2016, Nalle Hukkataival climbed the “Lappnor Project” in his home country of Finland. He named the boulder problem
Burden of Dreams and suggested the ground-breaking grade of V17 (9A)—the first V17 in the world.

The Lappnor Project, a short film by Blue KangooFilms, is “A documentary
about not giving up.” The film follows Hukkataival on his multi-year journey towards establishing Burden of Dreams.

The film is available on February 8, 2017 for streaming and download on Vimeo On Demand for $9.00. Follow thelappnorproject.com and facebook.com/BlueKangooFilms for more information.
