Nalle Hukkataival, The Swarm

Famed Finnish climber Nalle Hukkataival arrived in Bishop just a few days ago (along with Austrian bouldering masters Kilian Fischhuber and Anna Stör). After a month or two chilling at home and training in the gym, Nalle was ready to leave winter behind and hit the road again. On his first day he made a trip through the Buttermilks, doing some classics. A day later it was down to business with a quick (half hour or so) ascent of The Swarm (v13/14)! Nalle is here for a few weeks and says he's excited to get to grips with some of North America's most famous problems, highballs and all ... "The lines are amazing," he says.
