Climber Fang Hsiang from Taiwan has just solved a V13 bouldering problem “Deep Blue Sea”

Climber Fang Hsiang from Taiwan has just solved a V13 bouldering problem “Deep Blue Sea” in Black Cave near Sydney, Australia.  It is very likely the first time a Taiwanese reached this grade.  Take a look at the great short video clip!  The first half of the film is a record of more than 50 failed attempts in 6 days, which is what we all know too well about bouldering: Keep falling; keep trying; learn and make progress from it!
