What happens when three of the world’s best young boulderers go barnstorming on a country’s hardest blocs? In the old days, the answers ranged from raging on rock to partying in clubs; but that was before somebody started putting up a new V17 every week.

You can rely on Shawn Raboutou, Aidan Roberts, and Will Bosi to do one thing like clockwork: work the project.

That’s exactly how the three young boulderers spend most of their time together in this Swiss clip. Interludes are few, but attempts on the “Alphane” boulder are many.

Along the way, you can listen to the three young guns dish casually on topics ranging from bouldering to … pretty much bouldering.

This video may not fly high and party hard, but I’m not aware of a clip that gives you more face time with V17 climbers.
