The big Dyno's and Bouldering update has arrived! It contains three locations in the boulder-rich Fontainebleau Forest near Paris, many fixes and new features. Plus brand new climbing moves: Dyno's / Jumps!

Thanks everyone who participated in the testing and gave us feedback on the dyno's. It helped a great lot.

And now you can view the leaderboards online! The season has been bumped to Season 1, but the site also works for Season 0. You can find it here: https://newheightsgame.com/leaderboards/. Congratulations to DK37 for having very much dominated Season 0!

Also honourable mentions to runner-ups: pwndnoob, Qbx, Acedog11, SilverFox57, pitti42, NotDK37, Adam_Ondra_Official, Tvinz, Nettur39, Kristoffer, Chlorion, Reaper, ElDull, BBB171, Brand238, Medicated Blunt and SuperJack!

Hope you like the new update as much as we do!
