The same day, Samuel realized "General Disarray" 8B and "Marylin Monroe" 8A too. The next day he has done a probable FA, two moves for 7C+. This line is too beautiful to be unknown...

8A First Ascent


January 6th, Kevin Hemund realized the first ascent of «La Brionesque», a new 8A of scale. Kevin completed the project in two sessions, by finally finding a crucial hook in the upper part of the boulder.

Worth mentioning is his flash repetition of «Air on fire» 8A+ the previous week. Kevin adjusted this boulder opened by Guntram Jörg in 2009 to 8A.

Chironico and Cresciano are in mourning

"Vetruvian Man" is chipped!
"Arcadia" is chipped!
