Paul Robinson’s First Ascent of La Plancha (V14)
A new addition to the Flatirons above Boulder, Colorado.By Rock and Ice | January 17th, 2018
The Flatirons have many lifetimes of climbing, between trad, sport, easy free soloing and, of course, bouldering. Even though climbers have been visiting for decades, development continues, as Paul Robinson shows here.
Unlike most bouldering edits these days, the video above only shows Robinson’s send of the hard rig, and dispenses with the usual shots of failed attempts before the success. “Somehow I deleted the first day of footage from trying La Plancha when it was a project so all I had was the send clip!” Robinson writes on Youtube. La Plancha looks to be a great hard addition to the area—if you’ve got the chops, get after it!
