Therese Johansen, our newest 5.10 athlete in Norway, did her second 8A+ boulder today. When she is back at home and able to update her profile on 8a.nu, she will be ranked as the #1 female boulderer globally! And, her crusade has just started, expect big things from this 20 year old girl.

This june she will also be one of two norwegians participating in Bernd Zangerls Red Bull sponsored filmproject here in Norway. The other norwegian is also a Five Ten® athlete, Torstein Eide, who just did another 8A+/B first ascent at his home area.
Tomas Tobiassen did his first 8b+ route two days ago, after just 6 tries. He is also injured and is using a Gambit (two sizes too large) and a sock on his right foot. Andreas Hetland Olsen has after his return to Norway, done six 8A and two 8A+.
