The Record Keeper: Jens Larssen
The founder of 8a.nu on climbing news, record keeping, and the digitalization of climbing media.
How many of us, distracted at work or school, cue up 8a.nu to get a daily fix of climbing news straight from the source? The Strava of climbing, 8a.nu delivers a raw feed of ascents and commentary logged by the pros and everyday athletes alike.
The website was opened in 1999 as a local sport climbing blog for Gothenburg, Sweden, and has since grown to over 80,000 members across the globe, with nearly 6 million ascents logged in the database.
Join us for an Instagram Live session with 8a.nu founder Jens Larssen and Hayden Carpenter, a journalist and former editor at Rock and Ice magazine, as they chat about climbing news, record keeping, and the digitalization of climbing media.
