The Czech climber Martin Stráník put up a new 8C (V15), Liquid Luck (Tekuté Štěstí), last Friday in Moravian Karst, in the eastern Czech Republic. The problem follows a roof out of Sloupská Cave, leading to a big right-handed dyno up onto an overhanging face. Stráník told 8a.nu, “I tried it barely during last years, doing stand up version and figuring out sit start moves. The process of proper trying was three days. It is great powerful problem with hard ending.” On his 8a.nu scorecard, Stráník also wrote that it is now “one of the hardest boulders” in the Czech Republic. Adam Ondra swooped in for the second ascent almost immediately.
