Sergey Shaferov, Dragon Passion, 8c+/9a FA

“Living in Moscow, it’s not easy for me to climb on hard routes cause I have to travel for 800-1000km. It’s impossible to do a week end, I need more time, so for me it’s so important realize something like this”.

This said some days ago Sergey Shaferov and this is the reason cause some realizations are so important.
“ October, 12th in Crimea, after some weeks of attempts, I did the first ascent of Dragon Passion, graded for me 8c+/9a. Bolted by Kovalev in 2007 is in The Mouth of the Wolf Sector, Simeiz crag in Crimea. It’s short enough, in perfect boulder style, whit very explosives moves and the possibility to fall to the ground cause I did not use all the protections. I was in difficult the give a correct grade, so for confirm I wait the future.
I want to thanks Kovalev, photographer L. Mach and my friend P Petrov. Thanks also to my sponsor The North Face, Suunto, Beal, Scarpa, AQ."
