We've got news from a family who have already featured heavily on epicTV -- the Horsts. Jonathan Horst, the youngest person to ever climb 5.14 (about 8b+ in European terms) is at it again, having climbed Ultra Perm in the Red River Gorge of Kentucky. At "only" 8b, it's by no means his hardest route but given that he's only 12, it's pretty good going! Check out this video of him explaining a bit about him and his climbing.

Next we've got a video showing off a bouldering area that you don't hear much about, but which looks well worth a visit -- Aland island in Finland. 19 year old Italian climber Nicolo Ceria headed there earlier this year and managed to climb some incredible looking routes, including making the second ascent of Nalle Hukkataival's "Living the Dream", which he downgraded from 8B+ to 8B. Whatever the grade, it looks pretty amazing and hard to us.
