There have been a lot of big stories in bouldering over the past few weeks as the autumn temperatures have really started to set in. However, few people would have predicted the story that has dominated the headlines in the past few days. Almost 9 years after Ben Moon made the first ascent of 'Voyager Sit Start', the line has finally seen a repeat from visiting Italian climber Niccolò Ceria. The infamous problem, widely regarded as the hardest piece of climbing on gritstone, has resisted the efforts of some very strong climbers over the years and it's an incredible credit to Nicco that he managed to climb it so quickly. The good conditions are in the world over it seems as Alex Puccio continues her excellent run of form with a fourth 8B in four weeks and Toshi Takeuchi climbs his third 8C/V15 of 2015. We're going to leave you with a little indoor bouldering action for those of you more psyched for plastic than the cold autumn temperatures. Here's a clip from our edit of the adidas Rockstars competition 2015. You can watch the full video
