Tenerife being an awesome spot for rope climbing is well known. With Bouldering we are talking about a lot of uncertainty. Doing his homework of preparation and planning GU (Guntram Joerg) quickly realized that this island had already rejected the brave ascent attempts of many strong guys and girls.
It was only after short scouting-session with Walter Gollner – THE austrian-stranded-in-tenerife-local that GU realized that there still was loads of potential to crush. GU got to work and it was only a fews days that the first hits on his ticklist – some of them boulder problems that had been classified unclimbable. Among others: Me Media Naranja (8a+), La Guancha (8a+) und A Lion´s Doupt (8a).
News of GU crushing hard spread quickly on the island and more and more boulderers came by watching. Again it was Walter Goller who had the definite test-piece for him: the island’s king line which he had found over the years of inspecting nearly every single block on the Canary Islands.
